A dual Iranian-British citizen, who previously served as Iran’s deputy defense minister, reportedly provided crucial information to Western and Israeli intelligence units about the Islamic Republic’s secret nuclear weapons program.

Ali Reza Akbari was eventually caught by the Iranian regime, assisted by Russian intelligence, which accused him of espionage.

Akbari was sentenced to death and hanged in January. after 15 years of spying for the West.

The New York Times reported on Monday that Akbari's intelligence helped Great Britain provide crucial information about Iran’s nuclear program to the Jewish state, including its top-secret Fordo site.

Following Akbari's execution in January, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak blasted the Iranian regime.

“This was a callous and cowardly act, carried out by a barbaric regime with no respect for the human rights of their own people,” stated Sunak.

The ayatollah regime officially denies that it seeks to obtain nuclear weapons. However, Tehran has a long history of deception and few international pundits believe the ayatollahs are merely interested in 'peaceful nuclear energy' in a country exceedingly rich in oil and other natural resources.

In addition, a recent Iranian exhibition in Afghanistan openly called for the “nuclear extinction” of the Jewish state.

The ayatollah regime and its top officials have repeatedly called for Israel’s destruction. The combination of nuclear weapon ambitions and anti-Semitic ideology has only strengthened the belief that the Iranian regime poses an existential threat to the Jewish nation and its citizens.
