Iran executes former defence employee on charge of spying for Central Intelligence Agency

Iran executes 'US spy' who worked for defence ministry

He was identified as a spy by the defence ministry´s intelligence unit, ISNA said.

Washington and its allies will pay dearly for any act of aggression against Tehran, an Iranian general has said, vowing to retaliate with overwhelming force if the United States dares to fire even "one bullet" at the Islamic Republic.

The move "proved that Iran will not surrender easily to their (Americans') nonsensical talks", Pezeshkian, a reformist, said at the beginning of an open session of the parliament on Sunday.

Tehran says it entered Iranian airspace but the USA maintains it was shot down in worldwide airspace.

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.

President Donald Trump said on Friday that he had aborted a military strike to retaliate for the drone incident because it could have killed 150 people - which wasn't justifiable action to take for the destruction of an unmanned drone. The country has sustained global criticism for years for its multiple state executions.

The aborted United States military action was to have been in response to Iran´s downing of a USA reconnaissance drone, which has seen tensions between the two countries soar after a series of attacks on oil tankers the U.S. has blamed on Iran.

O'Brien said she was found by airport officials and escorted back, before she hurried out of the facility and drove home. Tiffani Adams fell asleep half way through her one-and-a-half-hour Air Canada flight from Quebec to Toronto last week.

"Iranians will meet diplomacy with diplomacy, respect with respect and war with zealous defence", he said.

"A limited strike could still produce an unlimited conflict", Kahl said during a conference call on June 21 to discuss the developments.

It published a map of the drone's flight path indicating it avoided Iranian waters, but Tehran provided its own map showing the aircraft inside its territory when it was downed by a domestically-manufactured Khordad 3 air defence battery.

The cyber offensive is the latest chapter in ongoing cyber operations between the USA and Iran.

Shekarchi told the agency that Iran will not start a war with America.

Operators should "evaluate the affected flying zones and.put in place the necessary measures to avoid operating in areas that may subject civil aviation operations to danger", the authority said.

Washington said the incident had occurred in worldwide airspace. Trump had said that he stopped the USA strikes after he was informed that 150 people will die in the attack. It was not the conventional military attack that involves loss of life or civilian casualties, it said.
