The anti-Iran terrorist Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) colludes with the US and Israel to carry out their destructive policies against Iran, a former member of the terror group says.
Speaking at a press conference in Tehran, two former MKO members, Ebrahim Khodabandeh and Maryam Sanjabi, elaborated on the terrorist nature of the group which has a long history of hostility and terrorist attacks against the Iranian nation.
“The MKO is not seeking a social position inside the Iranian society, but rather it is only trying to ensure the interests of the US and Israel,” Khodabandeh said.
“The group was initially established on the platform of fighting imperialism three decades ago, but today the group’s leaders do not follow this policy anymore and instead they have become the partners of the US and Israel in carrying out their destructive policies against Iran,” he added.
Sanjabi said the MKO does not observe human rights at all even in recruiting its forces.
“The group doesn’t care how old you are. We had a number of children from seven to ten years of age who’d been forced to join the group and indeed they were raised according to the group’s plans.”
She said that the leaders of the group believe that families are “the nest of corruption” so they try hard to disrupt family bonds and force members to forget their family.
The MKO is listed as a terrorist organization by much of the international community and has committed numerous terrorist acts against Iranians and Iraqis.
Out of the nearly 17,000 Iranians killed in terrorist attacks since the victory of the Islamic Revolution in 1979, some 12,000 have fallen victim to the acts of terror carried out by the MKO.
The terrorist group still continues its acts of terror against Iran under the support of certain Western powers.
