Operation Persian Seduction: Iranian women attempt to lure IDF soldiers with explicit photos

Iran reportedly used Hebrew-speaking women in Mashad to send sexually explicit content to Israeli soldiers in attempts to obtain information, Iran International revealed. The women were allegedly trained by the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), fluent in Hebrew, and used fake names and profiles to contact the soldiers over social media. The explicit content included real photos and videos, and the information gathered was allegedly passed on to Hamas. These tactics are not new to IDF soldiers, as Hamas has been using similar methods for years. In 2022, the IDF uncovered and foiled a Hamas network posing as young women on social networks. Iran International is a Persian news channel that regularly provides exposés on the activities of the IRGC.
