Iran claims to have carried out the execution of an alleged Mossad operative accused of espionage on behalf of Israel.

An individual without a name had delivered classified information to an officer from Mossad, as reported by the official news agency, Irna.

The official news agency, Irna, reported that an agent from Mossad, the intelligence agency of Israel, was executed in Iran.

The report stated, “This individual had been in communication with foreign services, particularly Mossad, and had been gathering classified information. In collaboration with associates, the person had provided documents to foreign services, including Mossad.”

The report did not disclose the identity of the person involved.

The accused had allegedly given classified information to a “Mossad officer” with the intention of promoting propaganda for groups and organizations opposed to the Islamic Republic. The report did not mention the location of the alleged handover.

The time of the person’s arrest was not specified, although the report mentioned that an appeal had been denied.

The execution occurred in a Zahedan prison in the Sistan-Baluchestan province of southeastern Iran. This took place one day after a police station in the province was attacked by Baluch militants, resulting in the death of 11 security personnel and multiple injuries.

According to state television, a state funeral was held on Saturday for the victims of the attack in the town of Rask. Two militants from the Jaish al-Adl group were also killed in the subsequent clashes.

Sistan-Baluchestan province, located on the border of Afghanistan and Pakistan, has been a frequent battleground between security forces and Sunni militants. The province has a predominantly Sunni Muslim population, in contrast to the majority Shia population of Iran.
