An Iranian citizen who provided information to U.S. and Israeli intelligence services about whereabouts of Iran's slain top commander Qassem Soleiman will be executed soon, Iran's judiciary spokesman said on Tuesday.

"Mahmoud Mousavi-Majd, one of the spies for CIA and Mossad has been sentenced to death. He gave the whereabouts of martyr Soleimani to our enemies," said Gholamhossein Esmaili in a televised news conference.

On Jan. 3, a U.S. drone strike in Iraq killed Soleimani, the head of Iran's elite Quds Force.
