The families of the victims of the latest terrorist incidents in Iran have strongly criticized the European Parliament for its support for an anti-Iranian terrorist group, according to a recent report.

In a letter to the European Parliament, relatives of the victims of two terrorist attacks carried out in Tehran on Monday criticized some European governments and international organizations for their stances on terrorism, the Fars news agency reported on Monday.
The families say the double standard applied by certain European countries toward terrorist groups like the Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) is a major cause of such inhumane activities.
Last week, the European Parliament issued a declaration urging Washington to remove the Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) from its list of foreign terrorist organizations.
Terrorists detonated bombs attached to the vehicles of Dr. Majid Shahriari and Professor Fereydoun Abbasi at separate locations on Monday morning between 7 and 8 a.m. local time as they were headed to work at Shahid Beheshti University.
Shahriari was martyred immediately, but professor Abbasi and his wife only sustained injuries and were transferred to a hospital.
Tehran Police Chief Brigadier General Hossein Sajedinia said a motorcycle approached Shahriari’s car and attached a bomb to the vehicle that exploded a few seconds later.
In a separate incident, terrorists attached another bomb to Abbasi’s car and escaped, he added.
He explained that the professor and his wife were injured in the attack but are not in critical condition.
The Iranian Foreign Ministry has also condemned the terrorist attack, saying the culprits are linked to Israel.
The MKO is listed as a terrorist organization by much of the international community.
Apparently emboldened by the EU, MKO members openly boast about the deadly acts of violence they have committed against Iranian civilians and government officials.
