December 26: Camp Liberty under missile attack by Iraqi forces for the fourth time in 2013

Iraqi government deliberately keeps Camp Liberty vulnerable against rocket attacks

Camp Liberty, an obsolete U.S. army outpost near Baghdad International Airport now inhabited by 3,000-odd Iranian refugees, has become the center of an escalating humanitarian crisis in the recent months as the Iraqi government proves through its actions that it has no intention to provide security for the camp’s residents. Once fully-equipped with 12-foot-tall concrete walls to protect U.S. soldiers from any sort of attack, today the camp is a mere shadow of its former self, and its accommodations offer no protection against rocket attacks that are frequently launched against it.

Following the suppressive measures carried out by Iraqi forces against Iranian dissidents in Camp Liberty past week, on Thursday, February 27, 2014, Iraqi forces again prevented the entrance of T-Walls inside Camp Liberty. These T-Walls were to be installed around the trailers of the residents in order to prevent them from rocket attacks against the camp. Instead, the Iraqi forces used the flatbeds and cranes, which had been rented at the residents’ expense, for their own use and in their own headquarters. Continue reading

For the clerical regime ruling Iran and the Iranian people and their resistance, 2013 proved to be one of the most eventful years since the overthrow of Shah’s dictatorship, and witnessed the severest confrontation yet between the two on all fronts.

The country’s official currency went on an unchecked free fall and sanctions imposed on a corrupt and degenerated political and economic infrastructure brought the country to the verge of bankruptcy. Unemployment was over 20% with soaring inflation hitting an unprecedented 50%. Continue reading

Watheg al-Battat, the scapegoat of missile attacks on Camp Liberty

Copy+of+300x250+Editorial+the+times+editorial+xgold+2012In order to cover up its involvement in attacks on Liberty Residents, Maliki’s government presented a man named Watheg al-Battat as the perpetrator of rocket attacks against Camp Liberty.

On Thursday, January 2, Government of Iraq reported the arrest of Watheq al-Battat, commander of the fictitious Al- Mukhtar Army. If this is not merely a farce, then interrogating him who himself has assumed responsibility for the rocket attack on Camp Liberty has to be conducted in presence of residents’ representatives, especially that the Iranian Resistance is quite well informed of the condition of Iranian regime’s paid hands in Iraq and has previously published a list of 32000 of them.
