The European Parliament recently witnessed 270 of its members issue a strongly worded statement lashing out and condemning the regime in Iran for its continuous and horrendous trend of human rights violations in contrast to preposterous claims of reforms and adopting a new approach. The statement encourages and rightfully demands the European Union and all Western governments “to condition any further relations with Iran to a clear progress on human rights and a halt to executions.” Continue reading The plight of human rights violations in Iran
Pro-Iran militia groups in Iraq on Monday, July 4th staged a new rocket attack against Camp Liberty near Baghdad International Airport, home to the remaining members of the Iranian opposition group People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI), destroying a large number of trailers and creating havoc amongst the community of Iranian refugees.
Early reports indicate a number of the residents in the camp have been injured and transferred to a nearby hospital for medical care. This is the latest rocket attack against this camp after the deadly 29 October 2015 attack that left over 24 residents killed and a large section of the camp leveled. This new rocket barrage is staged after 8 days of an intensified siege on Liberty imposed at the behest of the Iranian regime through the crackdown committee controlling daily affairs in the camp. All deliveries of fuel, food, medicine and hygiene products into Liberty have been banned and most recently even the rented sewage dump tracks are not allowed into the camp. This has left the residents facing a major hygiene crisis as the black water tanks will overflow into the residential areas.
The residents of Camp Liberty were promised protection by the United Nations, the U.S. government and the government of Iraq. However, they have been the targets of five different rocket attacks from February 2013 to this day, leaving dozens of residents killed and injured. This recent attack has left the residents in further fear of their uncertain future in Iraq.
mullahs’ regime is continuing its use of mass executions, barbaric punishments, floggings and widespread arrests during the holy month of Ramadan, which is considered amongst Muslims in Iran and all other Islamic countries as a period of friendship, kindness and benevolence.
Iranian authorities on June 15 sent five prisoners to the gallows in the central prisons of Bandar Abbas (southern Iran) and Yasouj (southwestern Iran). In the early days of Ramadan (2nd week of June) a deprived worker was horrifically flogged in public in the town of Ghir and Karzin in Fars Province (central Iran) under the pretext of eating during fasting hours. A number of other people in various cities including Hamedan, Isfahan and Islam Shahr have been arrested for similar reasons.

Day by day Iran is expanding its involvement in the conflict raging onward in Syria. The Revolutionary Guards has now dispatched a conglomerate of more than 60,000 troops on the ground, consisting of 8,000 notorious Quds Force members, thousands of foot-soldiers and mercenaries from Afghanistan, Iraq, Lebanon and Pakistan. Tehran is now so utterly embroiled in shoring the ruthless Bashar al-Assad regime that an Iranian army brigade consisting of the mullahs’ “Green Berets”, have been dispatched to Syria. This is the 65th Nohed Brigade and their first mission in 27 years underlines how desperate times call for desperate measures for Iran in preventing Assad’s downfall.
