Camp Liberty near Baghdad airport where Iranian dissident, members of the PMOI/MEK live in, came under heavy missile attack at half past 7 o’clock evening on Thursday, October 29, 2015. Preliminary reports indicate that more than 80 missiles have hit the camp killing in injuring dozens.
At least 23 members of the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran, PMOI (Mujahedin-e Khalq, MEK) are confirmed to have been killed in the terrorist attack while more than two dozen others are seriously injured.
The bodies of two martyred MEK members have been beyond any recognition.
Reports indicate that a number of trailers where the residents live have been totally destroyed and or burnt.
Maryam Rajavi strongly condemned the heavy missile attack this evening on Camp Liberty and declared: The government of Iraq and the United Nations who signed a Memorandum of Understanding and built a Temporary Transit Location (TTL) since 2011, are formally and legally accountable for this attack. In our view, however, as was the case in the six previous bloodbaths in Ashraf and Liberty, the Iranian regime’s agents in the government of Iraq are responsible for this attack and the United States and the United Nations are well aware of this fact.
Missile attack condemning
UNHCR issued a statement strongly condemning the rocket attacks in the vicinity of Baghdad International Airport, which have also hit adjacent Camp Liberty, reportedly causing injuries to dozens of people of concern and some 20 deaths.
“I am deeply troubled by reports that Camp Liberty residents have come under missile attack tonight and that there may be two dozen or more killed.
“Today’s reported attack, yet another deadly assault on civilians in Camp Liberty, is deeply troubling. The Iraqi government must provide immediate aid to the wounded and
At 7:40 pm local time Thursday 29 October 2015, Camp Liberty where over 2000 Iranian refugees reside near Baghdad came under severe missile attack.
According to preliminary reports, over 80 missiles of different kinds have hit the Camp leaving many dead and wounded among the defenceless residents.
We were just informed that there was yet another rocket attack on Camp Liberty, where members of Iran's democratic opposition, the PMOI, were forced to move in 2012 after assurances of protection by the UN and the US government. And yet we were waiting to see these promises to be fulfilled when this 4th deadly attack on Camp Liberty took place this evening local time, (29 October 2015).
The dire situation of Camp Liberty and the threat the residents are facing has been known to us since they were moved from Camp Ashraf in 2012. There were 3 previous attacks on Camp Liberty leading to death of 14 residents. We were promised proper investigation in all those attacks but the UN and the U.S. government have failed to live up to their promises. And when the perpetrators of such heinous acts were not held responsible, further attacks were certain to happen.
