Information gathered from survivors and witnesses proves that Iraqi forces directly affiliated with the Prime Minister’s office attacked Ashraf on September 1 upon the orders of the Iranian regime, murdering 52 residents and taking 7 others hostage. The accounts given by eyewitnesses are fully compliant with reports received by the Iranian resistance from inside Iran. Without any doubt, as was stated time and again in the statements by the Iranian resistance – which I sent to you previously – the seven hostages were abducted by Iraqi forces and are in the custody of Iraqi forces under the command of Prime Minister Al-Maliki.

The Iraqi government is still trying to deceive the international community and especially reporters to wash its hands clean from the crime it has committed. Watch the following short video, revealing the truth of the September 1 massacre.
