Iran To Execute Citizen Who Allegedly Leaked Information Regarding Qassem Soleimani To CIA

Click to see full-size image

On June 9th, Iran’s judiciary spokesman Gholamhossein Esmaili announced that Tehran would carry out the execution an Iranian citizen, who allegedly provided the CIA with information about the whereabouts of Major General Qassem Soleimani, who was killed in a US drone strike on January 3rd.

“Mahmoud Mousavi-Majd, one of the spies for CIA and [the Israeli intelligence service] Mossad has been sentenced to death. He gave the whereabouts of martyr [Qasem] Soleimani to our enemies”, Gholamhossein Esmaili told a televised news conference.

“He passed on security information to the Israeli and American intelligence agencies about Iran’s armed forces, particularly the Guards. He was sentenced to death by a revolutionary court and a supreme court has upheld his death sentence. He will be executed soon.”

The Iranian Students News Agency reported Esmaili as saying that Mousavi-Majd had been paid in US dollars for his information.

Officials have not said whether Mousavi-Majd’s case is linked to Iran’s announcement in February that a man had been sentenced to death for spying for the CIA and attempting to pass on information about Tehran’s nuclear programme.

According a report published in March by Newsweek, the operation to kill Soleimani was so secret that only a few individuals knew of it.

According to unnamed sources, Soleimani’s assassination was carried out in such secrecy that even the US military’s own spy satellites, the so-called “national technical means” (NTM), did not know about the drone’s position.

One of the sources claimed that there was “no GPS track on the MQ-9 Reaper as it made its way toward Baghdad International Airport, nor was there any indication of its flight provided to radar systems tasked with identifying friendly aircraft”.

Tehran announced in December it had arrested eight people “linked to the CIA” and involved in nationwide street protests that erupted the previous month over a surprise petrol price hike.

It also said in July 2019 that it had dismantled a CIA spy ring, arresting 17 suspects between March 2018 and March 2019 and sentencing some of them to death.

The January 3 strike that killed Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad also killed Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, deputy commander of Iran-backed militias in Iraq known as the Popular Mobilisation Forces, and five others, including the militias’ airport protocol officer, Mohammed Reda.

    I hope they don’t; there’s no excuse to behave like Americans.

    • Ivanus59

      They don’t what? Execute a traitor? What else are they supposed to do with him lmao?

      • Swift Laggard II

        i would not trust the Iranian judicial organs to deliver an objective verdict

        • Ivanus59

          And on what is your mistrust based? US anti-Iran propaganda?

          • Swift Laggard II

            you mean you don’t have a brain of your own so you operate on pro iran propaganda?

        • Jim Allen

          I’d trust Iran’s justice system over the West’s anytime. US in particular.

        • Cromwell

          You don’t have to.

        • Bob Murphy

          Shut the fuck up queer.

    • Assad must stay

      No excuse? Really? I’m pretty sure american govt would have no problem doing the same if the situation was reversed, they would probably enjoy it

      • Squeeth

        Have you missed the point? The American state is run by fucking savages who practice ritual murder. Civilised people know that they’re civilised because they don’t behave like that.

        • Assad must stay

          Yes, murder of innocent people who most of the time did nothing wrong, but this guy, why should he be left to live?

          • Squeeth

            Because killing people is wrong; not killing people is how we know we aren’t fucking savages.

          • Assad must stay

            U are very naive my friend in this regard

          • Squeeth

            No, civilised, the opposite of a fucking savage.

  • Chinese Dog

    Lol , their joker army(IRGC) was exposed as they couldnt retaliate to Soleimanis assassination. Also Israel conducts daily strikes on them in syria, but the only thing they are able to do is talk :D

    • AJ

      They did retaliate though, did you forget the missile strikes on US bases in Iraq which according to accounts left over 100 troops with brain injuries!!

      • Chinese Dog

        Lol, thats what happens when you rely on Chinese weapons. You never know which one is effective and which one isnt

        • AJ

          These were Irans own missiles not Chinese, the strikes were meant as a warning hence the limited damage.

          • Jim Allen

            Also, there’s the aircraft in Afghanistan the Taliban shot down.
            Reportedly at Iran’s request.
            Iran made it clear it wasn’t done with US yet on this issue.

    • Jim Allen

      Why don’t you go test Iran’s military, as if you’re some kind of expert. Trolls are not experts, they’re parrots of others statements. You have no thoughts of your own.

    • Bob Murphy

      Faggot, we will terminate you.

  • chris chuba

    Iranians might be getting setup by foreign Intel agencies, I get that emotions are running hot but Iran is very trigger happy on executions.

    • verner

      sure but so is the disjointed states of A with the preference for blacks whereas Iran is more after the odd jew spy.

      • chris chuba

        I’m against the death penalty in the U.S. because I do not trust the state in being able to administer it correctly.

        • Jim Allen

          I’m against the death penalty on principal. There’s no evidence Iran is abusing it’s authority on death penalty cases. As the Headcutters do.

    • Jim Allen

      How do you know this ? Did Iran execute you ?

    • Bob Murphy

      Traitors should die.

  • Free man

    The Mullahs regime is highly trained in the killing of its citizens. Iran is second only to China in the number of executions.

    • chris chuba

      Saudi Arabia beats out Iran by a hefty margin on a per capita basis.
      Iran 253 vs KSA’s 149 but Iran has 4 times the population.

      • Free man

        You’re right about Saudi Arabia having carried out 184 executions last year – the highest number ever recorded in the country so far, according to a report by Amnesty International.
        You should check the number of executions in Iran over the past 41 years. Factually, only China executes more.

        • Davide Herzog

          So you would leave sex maniacs go around free to commit crimes like those do everyday in the west…?!
          You named also a terrorist organization like amnesty international …don’ t you feel ashamed ?

          • Free man

            “don’ t you feel ashamed ?” – No.
            “You named also a terrorist organization like amnesty international” – Does that change the fact that a Muslim who converted to Christianity in Iran risks the death penalty.
            Are you ashamed of supporting a regime that executes Christians by choice?

        • Bob Murphy

          Faggots should be killed.

          • Free man

            This is what the mullahs regime does.
            So when you are in Iran, you should be restrained if you desire to engage in gay sex.

          • Bob Murphy

            No, faggots should be killed. Restrained? Hell no.

    • Bob Murphy

      Subhuman dog,. you should be executed for slandering decent governments.

      • Free man

        “slandering decent governments” – LOL.

  • Assad must stay

    Bye bye mister traitor man lol

  • Cromwell

    In WW2 the French resistance gave scum like this guy a summary trial then shot them.

  • Bob Murphy

    Great. Personally I would torture this Zionist dog to death, but if they want to be politically correct about it…

    • Free man

      I think you’re wrong. The mullahs regime is also known for its excellent torture skills
      You are a great representative of the mullahs regime, don’t sell yourself short.

  • goingbrokes

    Soleimani was not travelling under a heavy blanket of secrecy, so it’s not like it was some super secret info that was provided. Having said that, providing a declared enemy any helpful/damaging information is treason.
