Iran executes four accused of plotting to blow up missile plant for Mossad

Iran executed four men at dawn on Monday after they were convicted of spying for Israel, according to Tehran’s judiciary.

“The death sentence of four members of a group affiliated with the Zionist spy organization, who were arrested… for plotting a bombing operation in [the central province of] Isfahan, was carried out this morning,” the judiciary’s website Mizan Online reports.

According to state-run news outlet ISNA, the four had plotted to blow up a Defense Ministry plant related to missile production.

The report claimed the four, from Iran’s Kurdish region, were arrested in August last year, and that the plot, which involved 16 different bombs, had been personally overseen by Mossad head David Barnea.
