Iran hangs 2 men for spying for Mossad and CIA
The two men executed allegedly provided the Mossad & CIA with classified information on Iran, but it’s unclear when the alleged espionage activity happened or about the information passed.
By The Associated Press & Israel Hayom Staff
Iran’s state radio says authorities have executed two men convicted of spying for the Mossad and the American CIA spy agency.
Sunday’s report says Mohammad Heidari, who was accused of providing the Mossad with classified information in exchange for money, and Kourosh Ahmadi, who allegedly gave the CIA intelligence on Iran, were hanged.
The report didn’t say when the men were arrested or tried.
Iran occasionally says it has dismantled Western spying networks in the country and announces arrests of individuals on espionage charges.
Tehran accuses Israel and the U.S. of spying on its vital interests, particularly its nuclear program, which the West suspects is aimed at producing an atomic weapon. Tehran denies the charge.
Neither Israel nor the U.S. has ruled out a military option against Iran’s nuclear facilities.
