Iranian Judiciary authorities have executed four people convicted of working for the Israeli Mossad spy agency and plotting a bomb attack against a Defense Ministry factory in the country’s central province of Isfahan.
Mizan news agency, affiliated with the Iranian Judiciary, reported on Monday that the four convicts, identified as Mohammad Faramarzi, Mohsen Mazloum, Vafa Azarbar, and Pejman Fatehi, had illegally entered Iran from the semi-autonomous Kurdistan region of Iraq.
They were planning to carry out a bombing operation against an installation in Najafabad city, which is manufacturing military equipment and missile components for the Defense Ministry, on July 23, 2022. However, they were identified and captured by the Iranian intelligence forces a few days before the plotted act of terror.
The report added that the four were convicted of intelligence cooperation with Israel and were sentenced to death by an Islamic Revolution Court on September 18, 2023.
Mizan noted that the terrorists had been recruited by a high-profile member of the anti-Iran Komala separatist and terrorist group, which is based in Iraq’s Kurdistan region and joined Mossad nearly a year and a half before their terrorist operation in Iran.
They had undergone training at military bases in several African countries and even held meetings with Director of the Mossad David Barnea.
Back on December 29 last year, four main members of a sabotage team affiliated with Mossad were executed in the northwestern Iranian province of West Azarbaijan after being convicted of acting against the country’s security.
Mizan reported at the time that they were members of a ten-strong Mossad-linked sabotage team, whose primary task was to identify Iranian intelligence agents engaged in thwarting anti-Iran Israeli plots.
They were all tracked down and subsequently arrested following complicated intelligence operations and close surveillance.
The convicts, including three men and a woman, were hanged on charges of “corruption on Earth” and “waging war against God” (moharebeh) through intelligence cooperation with Israel with the intent to undermine Iran’s security.
