Mujahedin Khalq Organization elements attacked the Iranian families and the Iraqi security forces.
While preventing the Iranian families visit their relatives incarcerated in Ashraf Camp in Iraq’s Diyala Province, MKO elements attacked the Iranian families and the Iraqi security forces accompanied them.
Iranian families asked the Iraqi government to take urgent measures for the release of their children imprisoned in Ashraf Camp.
One of the relatives of the detainees told Alalam : “elements of Mujahedin have captured my brother here in Ashraf Base and despite all the problems, we’ve come from Iran but the Organization prevents us to visit him . I ask the Iraqi government to solve this problem.
The child of another detainee said:” My father has long been confined in Ashraf Base, Iraq. I am here to meet my father but the MKO’s elements refused to let me visit my father and beat me.
Adel Almane Iraqi political activists told Alalam : “The Iraqi government opposes the presence of any armed organization in its territory as it threatens the security of neighboring countries as well as that of Iraq itself. “
He also said: "to give the opportunity to MKO to reside at Iraq would darken the Iran-Iraq diplomatic relations.”
