The US military forces in Iraq are training 150 members of a terrorist organization at a military base in the war-ravaged country, informed sources say.
The sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Press TV that the select group of terrorists, all longtime members of the Mujahedin Khalq Organization (MKO), has been moved from their base in Camp Ashraf near Baghdad to a US base in central Iraq.
The trainings are taking place at Camp Taji, a military installation used by the coalition forces. The base is located near the central town of Ramadi, capital of Anbar province.
The US plans to dispatch the trained MKO members as secret agents across the border and into Iran, with plans to carry out terror acts, according to the sources.
The Iraq-based group is listed as a terrorist organization by much of the international community and aside from conducting numerous acts of terror in Iran, is also known for its full-fledged support for former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein in suppressing the 1991 Shia uprisings in southern Iraq and the massacre of Iraqi Kurds.
