TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri advised opposition and hostile groups to learn lessons from the fate of the terrorist Mujahedin-e-Khalq Organization (MKO) which has been disgraced and barred from everywhere.
The top Iranian general released a message on Wednesday to mark two events, a blast carried out by the MKO terrorists back in 1981 that killed 72 ranking Iranian officials in Tehran and the anniversary of the chemical bomb attacks on Iran’s northwestern city of Sardasht in 1987 by the regime of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, who was a staunch supporter of the notorious MKO terrorists.
Major General Baqeri said the grim fate of the perpetrators of those two heinous crimes is clear proof of the victory of the truth against falsehood.
While Saddam was annihilated in the worst and most humiliating manner, the MKO mercenaries have also been frustrated and displaced more than ever, in such a way that no European government would shelter them who are caught between two stools, the commander added.
He further warned the opposition groups which have betrayed the Iranian people and relied upon the support of the enemies of Iran to learn lessons from the fate of the MKO terrorists.
Last week, the Albanian police forces raided a camp belonging to the MKO due to its engagement in “terror and cyber-attacks” against foreign institutions.
At least one MKO terrorist was killed and dozens of others were injured during the clashes at the camp, known as Ashraf-3, in the northwest of the capital Tirana.
MKO members spent many years in Iraq, where they were hosted and armed by the former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein. They sided with Saddam during the 1980-88 imposed war against Iran and then helped him quell domestic uprisings in various parts of the Arab country.
The notorious group is responsible for killing thousands of Iranian civilians and officials after the victory of the Islamic Revolution in 1979.
More than 17,000 Iranians, many of them civilians, have been killed at the hands of the MKO in different acts of terrorism including bombings in public places, and targeted killings.
