BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:10 A.M.) – The Tansim News Agency of Iran published new details about the spy who was convicted of revealing the whereabouts of the late commander of the Quds Force, Major General Qassem Soleimani, to the American and Israeli intelligence services.
The agency reported on Sunday that the spy, Mahmoud Mousavi Majd, was not actually in the military or a member of the Popular Mobilization Organization (Basij) of the Revolutionary Guards, and had not gone to Syria in recent years.
The report, which is based on private security information, indicated that the Mousavi Majd family left Iran before the Islamic Revolution in 1979 and went to Syria and settled there.
The report revealed that Mousavi Majd strengthened his contacts and relations with a number of Iranian military advisers in Syria, began working with them as a driver and began collecting private information about them and delivering them to the CIA and the Israeli Mossad.
The Tasnim Agency report confirms that the convict was receiving $5,000 a month in exchange for disclosing this information.
The information published in the report shows that the security services of Hezbollah were able to identify the identity of Mousavi Majd in April 2018 before he was arrested and extradited to Iran.
Soleimani was assassinated by the U.S. military while traveling near the Baghdad International Airport on January 3rd, 2020.
The late Quds Force commander was traveling with the Deputy Head of the Popular Mobilization Units (Hashd Al-Sha’abi), Abu Mahdi Al-Mohandis, who was also killed by the U.S. drone strike.
