Activities of the MEK’S Network Inside Iran, Commemorate Victims of 2011 Camp Ashraf Attack
The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), and the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), reported that the internal network of the MEK commemorates victims of the 2011 Camp Ashraf attack.
In 2011 Nuri al-Maliki, the Tehran-loyal prime minister of Iraq, Under the direct order of the mullah regime the Iraqi army launched a massive deadly attack against the resident of Camp Ashraf, using firearms and armored vehicles.
The attack left 36 dead and hundreds of wounded and drew widespread condemnation from the international community.
The MEK Resistance Units installed images of MEK martyrs in Tehran, Mashhad, Shiraz, and Nishabur, marked with the slogan “We pledge to continue the path of 36 martyrs of Ashraf who fought till the end.”
The MEK Resistance Units also held images of MEK member Saba Haftbaradaran, who bravely said in the last moments of her life that “We will stand until the end.” Saba’s last message became a symbol for the rebellious youth of Iran. It also showed the world the perseverance and steadfastness of the MEK members in Camp Ashraf.
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Iran (NCRI), said: “On April 8, 2011, in a stunning display of perseverance, the MEK confronted the armed forces of the mullahs’ puppet regime in Iraq. Their epic became eternal with the message of Saba Haft Baradaran. She used all her remaining energy to say: “We will stand to the end,”.
From 2009, Camp Ashraf came under a siege by the Iraqi government, where delivery of food, fuel, and medicine was hampered and visits by family members, human rights organizations, residents’ lawyers, and independent journalists were disallowed.
For almost two years the Camp Ashraf residents were constantly subject to psychological torture by agents of the mullahs’ regime using more than 320 loudspeakers threatening the residents with death and using abusive words all through days and nights.
Despite the coordinated persecution campaign by the mullahs regime and the so-called Iraqi government, the MEK members in Camp Ashraf showed unparalleled resilience and became a source of inspiration for Iranian youth inside Iran and across the world.
