The missile attack on Monday followed “an eight-day blockade that prevented food and medicine from reaching the camp”. The NCRI, the International Business Times reported, “has also long complained that the standards at the camp are poor, and that it has been designated a temporary transit location rather than a refugee camp in order to avoid having to meet the minimum standards for refugee camps.”
The International Business Times reported that “Iranian exiles” blamed Monday night’s attack “on Tehran’s Revolutionary Guard,” specifically, “a special unit of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards,” the Quds Force.
NCRI President Maryam Rajavi called on the UN Security Council and the European Union to condemn the attack. She added that “the attack demonstrated that the religious dictatorship ruling Iran is terrified of the PMOI/MEK and the Iranian Resistance, which it views as an existential threat.”
The report also carried pictures of the destruction caused by the more than 50 missiles aimed at Camp Liberty. Comments on the report included the following:
