A mole in the IRGC?

Iran's IRNA news agency is reporting that at least one of the three alleged Israeli spies arrested on Monday had penetrated the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps.
IRNA quoted Teheran General Prosecutor Saeed Mortazavi as saying the network formed after Israel's Mossad spy agency recruited a man who had "previously been in connection with the Guards."

He said the three members of the network were trained by Israeli intelligence agents, but were detained before they could relay any information to Israel.

Mortazavi added that the spies, who planned to bomb military sites and assassinate military experts, now face capital punishment.
While it's certainly plausible that Israel has spies in Iran (I'd regard that as a virtual certainty), the government has not had any comment on this story.

Hmmm. I'd say the Iranian opposition is a more likely source although they may be sharing information with the Mossad.
