Israeli Spies Doing Serious Damage to Iranian Intelligence

Top official sacked, general arrested for spying

Israel’s spy agencies are constantly active, and constantly targeting Iran. This is starting to have a serious impact, with Iranian intelligence suffering some major damage, and top-ranking officials losing out.

Last week, IRGC intelligence chief Hossein Taeb was abruptly sacked from his position. Rumors are this was related to an alleged plot in Turkey, which harmed Iran-Turkey ties.

It could’ve been worse though, he could’ve been Gen. Ali Nasiri, another top IRGC figure, who was reportedly arrested this month on charges of spying outright for Israel.

It’s not clear that allegation is true. Rather, it reflects the damage done by Israel, and the amount of mistrust that’s going around security circles.
