Iraqi MP Urges Swift Expulsion of MKO

A prominent Iraqi lawmaker warned against the threats posed by the anti-Iran terrorist Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) and called for the immediate expulsion of the group’s elements from Iraq.Iraqi MP Urges Swift Expulsion of MKO

“The MKO is a completely terrorist group and its elements are looking for a suitable opportunity to conduct terrorist acts and incite crisis in the country (Iraq),” Al-Alam quoted member of the Iraqi Parliament’s Security and Defense Commission Ammar Tameh as saying.

Tameh underlined that the remaining MKO elements should be expelled from Iraq as soon as possible.

Despite efforts by the Iraqi government to expel all MKO elements from Iraq, the western supporters of MKO, specially the US, have prevented their expulsion from the Muslim country so far.

In September 2012, the last groups of the MKO terrorists left Camp Ashraf, their main training center in Iraq’s Diyala province. They have been transferred to Camp Liberty transient facility near Baghdad.

No world country has yet accepted to host the members of the terrorist group.

Members of the MKO, who had murdered over 17,000 Iranians since the 1979 Islamic Revolution, fled to neighboring Iraq in 1980s, where they received military training from the former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein and set up Camp Ashraf.
