An Iranian citizen who provided information to US and Israeli intelligence services about whereabouts of Iran's top commander Qasem Soleimani will be executed soon, Iran's judiciary spokesman said today.
"Mahmoud Mousavi-Majd, one of the spies for CIA and Mossad has been sentenced to death.
"He gave the whereabouts of martyr Soleimani to our enemies," said Gholamhossein Esmaili in a televised news conference.
Top Iraqi militia commander Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, an adviser to General Soleimani, was also killed in the attack.
General Soleimani's killing marked a dramatic escalation in the regional "shadow war" between Iran and the US and its allies, principally Israel and Saudi Arabia, raising fears of an increase in tit-for-tat attacks.
Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei vowed harsh revenge.
In the aftermath of the airstrike, the US embassy in Baghdad urged its citizens to "depart Iraq immediately".
