Mrs Rajavi also demanded that the UN Security Council and the European Union unequivocally condemn the missile attack on Camp Liberty. The Iranian regime’s intentions towards the camp were clear, she said. It was therefore a matter of urgency that the international community act.
The rocket attack of Monday night injured 40 residents and caused major destruction, with missile craters seven feet wide and five feet deep. Mrs Rajavi wished the injured speedy recoveries and praised Camp Liberty’s residents for their perseverance in such appalling conditions.
The missile barrage came on the eighth day of a blockade of Camp Liberty by Iraqi security forces. Soldiers have been preventing food, medicine and fuel from reaching the camp. The blockade continues.
This latest rocket attack – the fifth in four years – was conducted by Iraqi forces co-operating closely with the Quds Force of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. The notorious Quds Force conducts terrorism on behalf of the Iranian regime.
Mrs Rajavi noted that the Iranian regime has opposed any solution that preserves the security of the residents. That the regime seeks only to annihilate those at Camp Liberty demonstrates, she said, that the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) and the Iranian Resistance are still seen as existential threats to regime security.
