Anti-MKO rally to be held in front of French Embassy
Families of Victims condemn the French/Zionist support for terrorist group
The families of those killed in terrorist attacks by the Mojahedin Khalq Organization (MKO) are to stage protests in front of the French Embassy in Tehran.
The rally will be held in protest to the French government’s decision to allow the terrorist group to hold a demonstration in a Paris suburb on Saturday.
Iranian demonstrators will gather in front of the French Embassy on Monday, June 28, which marks the anniversary of a deadly terrorist attack by the MKO in 1981 in Tehran.
The 1981 MKO attack resulted in the death of 70 high-ranking Iranian officials of the Islamic Republic Party, including Judiciary Chief Ayatollah Mohammad Beheshti..
The decision by Paris to allow the MKO to hold the gathering comes while the Iraq-based group is listed as a terrorist organization by much of the international community.
Founded in the 1960s, the MKO has masterminded a slew of terrorist operations in Iran and Iraq, killing thousands of people and wounding many more.
The group is especially notorious for taking sides with former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein during the 1980-1988 war Iraqi-imposed on Iran.
