I have long advocated that the United States must uphold its promises to protect the thousands of unarmed Iranian refugees in Iraq as they await final resettlement to third countries through the United Nations. To my regret, warnings of an impending bloodbath perpetrated by Tehran came true last month when 24Iranian dissidents were killed in a horrific rocket attack against their defenseless encampment. Dozens more were wounded.
Over 80 missiles rained into Camp Liberty, where 2,200 members of the main Iranian opposition group, the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK) have lived since February 2012, when they agreed to relocate from Camp Ashraf, their home of 25 years, as a good faith gesture to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. In 2003, the group disarmed – just two years after renouncing violence in exchange for U.S. protection. But the U.S. has consistently reneged on its written commitment to these defenseless refugees, even in the wake of repeated attacks.

Iraq: Family unit or taking advantages of families

Camp Liberty in vicinity of Baghdad International Airport is home to thousands of Iranian dissidents, including nearly 1000 women, members of People’s Mujahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI). The Mullahs in Iran have found PMOI their most threatening enemy. Fear of this most structured organization, capable of overthrowing the regime, has made Iranian authorities, such as Khamenei and Rouhani, to direct their proxies in Iraq “to make life intolerable for them”.

Apart from logistics and medical blockade, the Iraqi intelligence agents, loyal to Iranian regime, are pursuing the same scenarios that ended with bloody massacres in Camp Ashraf. More than 100 residents of Camp Ashraf, former home of Camp Liberty residents were slain and many injured in attacks ordered by Nouri Maliki. Having not been able to get rid of the residents by terrorist Para military attacks, Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence (MOIS) thought of a new filthy trick, bringing its agents disguised as residents ‘families.
