Mahmoud Mousavi-Majd, a translator accused of spying on the late Revolutionary Guards commander Qassem Soleimani, has been executed by the Iranian government.
Majd who worked as an English and Arabic language translator in Syria, was accused of spying for US and the Israeli Mossad. The judiciary’s Mizan Online website reported on Monday July 20;
“Mahmoud Mousavi Majd’s sentence was carried out on Monday morning over the charge of espionage so that the case of his betrayal to his country will be closed forever.
“His knowledge of Arabic and familiarity with Syria’s geography made him close to Iranian military advisers and he took responsibilities in groups stationed from Idlib to Latakia.”
