MEK Iran: Attack on Ashraf Camp

52 were massacred in Ahsraf

(PMOI / MEK Iran) and (NCRI): 52 unarmed residents, members of MEK, were slaughtered in Camp Ashraf on 1st Sep 2013.

 

The Iranian opposition movement, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), and the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran) are led by selfless women who have given up all for the sake of bringing freedom and democracy to their country’s people.

Powerful women have grown vital to the Iranian opposition

These powerful women have grown vital to the Iranian opposition’s fight for regime change and democracy over the years. As a result, women are viewed playing a critical part in the movement at every critical point.

On September 1, 2013, in Ashraf, one such turning point occurred.

Ashraf embodied the spirit and emblem of Iran’s democratic regime change struggle. Hitmen raided unarmed, innocent, and legally protected civilians at Camp Ashraf, the 30-year headquarters of the Iranian opposition, the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), in Iraq, on September 1, 2013, as the Iranian regime was preparing to sit at the negotiating table in Geneva over its nuclear program.

Iraqi special forces and Iranian commandos stormed the camp

Iraqi special forces and Iranian commandos stormed the camp about 5 a.m., machine-gunning the unarmed and helpless Ashraf residents.

The assassins got hold of 52 of the 100 remaining residents of Ashraf and killed them in cold blood. Some people were executed with their hands tied behind their backs. Even the wounded on the clinic beds were killed by gunfire. A shot to the head was given to everyone. By all accounts, this is a major crime against humanity.

Ashraf inhabitants were all protected individuals under the Fourth Geneva Convention

According to a quadrilateral agreement between Ashraf inhabitants, the US, the UN, and the Iraqi government to preserve residents’ property after their removal to Camp Liberty, thirteen women led a group of 100 who remained in Ashraf.

They were all protected individuals under the Fourth Geneva Convention, and the UN High Commissioner for Refugees had categorized them as “persons of concern” who benefited from “international protection,” and they had stayed in the camp based on guarantees from the UN, the US, and the Iraqi government.

(NCRI) and (PMOI / MEK Iran): The US State Dept. in a report on 17 October 2013, revealed new details on the massacre of MEK members in Camp Ashraf in 2013.

 

MEK is the biggest existential threat to the mullahs’ regime

Prior to the Geneva talks, where it had to give up its nuclear weapons development in exchange for the easing of severe sanctions, the Iranian dictatorship tried to inflict a crushing blow to its biggest existential threat, the (PMOI / MEK Iran).

As a result, the barbaric attack on defenseless civilians in Ashraf was launched in order to obscure the regime’s flaws at a critical point.

One of the massacre’s victims was 49 years-old Zohreh Ghaemi, Deputy Secretary-General of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran.
