More than fifty people were injured in Monday’s attack, the fifth in four years, and the camp was severely damaged.

The Rt Hon. David Jones MP, President of the newly formed all-party Parliamentary Group for a Free and Democratic Iran, said, “This rocket attack on the defenceless residents of Camp Liberty is but the latest in a series of similar outrageous attacks.” 

The IPCDA, he said, had campaigned for years to try to ensure the international community provided for the security of the unarmed oppositionists in the camp, gaining the support of 400 Members of Parliament from all the major parties.

It was, said Mr Jones, the Iraqi government which had “primary responsibility for protecting the residents.”  That government had “once again failed in its duty,” he said.
