Iran executes ‘defence ministry contractor’ over spying for CIA

Iran execution

Iran has accused USA of violating its national sovereignty by flying the drone over the waters of the Strait of Hormuz, but Washington has maintained that the spying unmanned plane had been in worldwide airspace when hit by a missile.

Iran warned the United States on Saturday that any aggression against the Islamic republic would have serious consequences for U.S. interests across the Middle East.

EVIL Iranian lawmakers chanted "Death to America" during a parliament session today after a speaker accused the United States of being the "real world terrorist", amid escalating tension with Washington following the downing of an unmanned US drone off the Iranian coast.

In an interview with Tasnim, Brigadier General Abolfazl Shekarchi reiterated that the Islamic Republic will never be the first side to start a war, but the enemy's slightest mistake will draw a revolutionary response from Iran in West and Central Asia from which the attackers would not survive.

Mr Hajizavar was reportedly executed several days ago at the Rajaishahr prison in Karaj, near to the capital Tehran.

Three U.S. officials tell The Associated Press that the operation on Thursday evening disabled Iranian computer systems that controlled Iran's rocket and missile launchers.

The US is seeking a way to evade the costs of standing against Iran and place them on regional countries, the Leader said, reminding certain regional countries that if they confront Iran, "they will definitely suffer blows and defeat".

All such reports were rubbed away when a feud between the Lakers legend LeBron James and Kyrie Irving came to public. Irving then signed with Roc Nation Sports, Jay-Z's sports management company.

The strongly-worded response from Iran comes just a day after the United States military was all set to retaliate in response to the downing of its BAMS-D RQ-4A Global Hawk High-Altitude Long Endurance (HALE) Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) by the former's armed forces.

The US Federal Aviation Administration has barred American civilian aircraft from the area "until further notice", and major non-US airlines including British Airways, KLM, Lufthansa, Qantas, Emirates and Etihad said they too were altering flight paths to avoid the sensitive Strait of Hormuz.

In a June 21 statement, Iran's Foreign Ministry said that "even some parts of the drone's wreckage have been retrieved from Iran's territorial waters".

"He was identified by the Defense Forces and prosecuted by the Tehran military prosecutor".

Washington said the incident had occurred in worldwide airspace.

Worries about a confrontation between Iran and the U.S. have mounted despite Trump saying that he has no appetite to go to war with Iran.

"One who wants to negotiate does not impose sanctions", Pezeshkian says of Trump who repeatedly calls for talks with Iran.
