The recent terrorist attacks against Iranian nationals and pilgrims in Iraq have been funded by the anti-Iran terrorist group, Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO), Iraqi media reported.
"A hireling Iraqi group paid by the MKO is responsible for the recent attacks on Iranian pilgrims," Alla al-Khatib, a prominent Iraqi writer and journalist said, Habilian website reported.
The journalist underlined that available documents and evidence display that the crime had been committed by MKO affiliates.
Khatib reiterated that the attacks are aimed at creating distrust among Iranian pilgrims and Iraqi officials.
The Iraqi writer, however, noted that such actions by the MKO cannot create a rift in Tehran-Baghdad friendly ties.
Elsewhere, Khatib described the vote by the Iraqi security forces to seize MKO’s main base and training camp as "completely legal", and added, "Existence of Camp Ashraf in this crisis-stricken region was a great problem."
Iraqi security forces took control of MKO’s Camp Ashraf about 60km (37 miles) north of Baghdad late July and detained dozens of the members of the terrorist group.
Following the operation, the Iraqi authority also changed the name of the military center from Camp Ashraf to the Camp of New Iraq.
