Iran Executes Alleged Israeli Spy

An Israeli spy was put to death by Irani authorities after they detained him on terror plot charges.

The country’s state media reported that the Mossad operative was plotting to bomb the Ministry of Defense.

This follows last month’s execution of four individuals by Iran on suspicion of involvement in a single bomb plot.

The four individuals allegedly received training in an African country from an Israeli intelligence service before they entered Iran from the Kurdistan region of Iraq.

All four—Mohsen Mazloum, Mohammad Faramarzi, Pejman Fatehi, and Vafa Azarbar—are Iranian nationals.

According to Iran’s state media, IRNA, a missile and defense equipment factory, was believed to be Iran’s intended target. The operation was allegedly planned to be carried out in 2022 by the Israeli intelligence agency Mossad.

According to sources, Iranian intelligence foiled the scheme.

Following the Supreme Court’s rejection of appeals, the death penalties were executed on Monday.

In terms of annual executions, Iran ranks second only to China, according to Amnesty International.

The executions were perceived as retaliation for the Christmas Day killing of senior Iranian commander Sayyed Razi Mousavi in Syria.

The Times of Israel states that Iran routinely asserts its ability to thwart Mossad activities within the nation; however, the validity of these assertions remains uncertain.

Tehran has accused Israel of conducting multiple clandestine operations on Iranian soil.

Isfahan is home to the Natanz nuclear enrichment complex, and in February 2023, the Iranian intelligence ministry announced that it had apprehended the “main actors” responsible for the drone strike on a site belonging to the military ministry.

During an assault on a facility in the province belonging to the military ministry, two drones detonated, and one was destroyed by an anti-aircraft system last month, according to officials.

The defense ministry reported that the nighttime attack resulted in no injuries and barely moderate damage.
