The resettlement of residents of Liberty to European countries is a triumph given the resources the Iranian regime dedicated to their annihilation. 

The residents had been under an eight-year siege, and were subjected to a range of attacks by the regime’s proxies which left 177 dead. The regime also used fake arrest warrants to try to prevent the departures. 

The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) commended the tireless efforts of its President-elect, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi,  as well as those of distinguished American, European and Arab figures, to protect Liberty residents. 

The safety of the residents has not been achieved without cost, however. The regime used its influence with the Iraqi authorities to ensure that residents were not permitted to take any personal possessions and that collective resources were disposed of without compensation.
