An Iranian citizen was sentenced to death, who provided the Central Intelligence Agency of the United States (CIA) with information on the whereabouts of the IRGC General Kassem Suleimani, who was killed by an American drone on January 3.

The official added that the convict for money collected and transmitted to foreign enemy intelligence information about the security of Iran and the Armed Forces, including the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC).
General Kassem Suleimani, the commander of the elite Iranian unit of the KIIR Kuds, was killed on January 3 as a result of an attack by an American drone when he rode with a motorcade from Baghdad Airport.
Media sources reported that the assassination of Suleymani was an extremely secret operation, for which the Pentagon used the MQ-9 Reaper drones, which did not have a GPS trace and were invisible even to “national technical means” – that is, for spy satellite of the US army.
