Military occupation of Camp Ashraf – No. 144
Iranian regime’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) is planning to dispatch a number of its agents from city of Urumieh in western Iran and its vicinity to further intensify the psychological torture of Ashraf residents. The agents will leave Urumieh for Iraq on buses on October 12, 2011.
The psychological torture of Ashraf residents has continued since early 2010 with some 300 loudspeakers placed in and around the camp by MOIS agents with full political and logistical support of the Iraqi Government and forces. They are used for blaring profanities and threatening the residents around the clock.
According to the reports from inside the Iranian regime, the Iraqi committee tasked with suppression of Ashraf, has already prepared the necessary facilities for the stay of Iranian regime’s agents. Iraqi border guards have received the names of the agents so they would not face any difficulty entering Iraq.
Furthermore, in coming weeks a number of other agents will be dispatched from Fars province in southern Iran to Ashraf to replace returning agents.
While stipulating that the silence and inaction by the international community in this regard has persuaded the Iranian regime and the Iraqi forces to continue and intensify the blatant and systematic violations of international laws and conventions, the Iranian Resistance calls on United Nations, the U.S. and the EU for urgent action to end the psychological torture of Ashraf residents and calls for the permanent stationing of UN monitors in the camp to protect the residents and prevent the Iranian regime from carrying out its plans to annihilate them.
