Camp Ashraf military occupation-No. 159
At the same time that the Iranian regime and its puppets in Iraq insist on repressive and illegal deadline for closure of Ashraf by the end of 2011, they resort to new intrigues to massacre Ashraf residents.
It is more than a week now that the mullahs’ embassy in Baghdad, in coordination with the Iraqi committee tasked to suppress Ashraf residents in the Iraqi Prime Ministry, have stationed a number of Iraqi hirelings at Ashraf’s entrance to pretend as if the deadline set for closure of Ashraf by the end of 2011 is what the people of Iraq want. The embassy pays these hirelings 10,000 dinars a day in addition to food and living facilities. The mullahs’ embassy has also promised anyone participating in this show a free trip to the Shiite holy city of Mashhad in northeastern Iran and free medical treatment in Iran.
As a stage of this program, more hirelings are supposed to be brought to the Ashraf’s main gate on Friday, November 11th. The Prime Ministry has tasked military and security organizations in Diyala province to make local inhabitants participate in this show through intimidation or enticement.
Through one of its known agents by the name of Ali Zoheiri, the regime’s embassy has promised its local agents to pay them 50,000 dinars for each bus and 25,000 dinars for each minibus of local inhabitants should they bring to the show. It has also promised to pay 10,000 dinars to each participant.
Through such deeds, they seek to prepare the ground for intensification of suppression and another massacre by broadcasting photos and footages of the show. The propaganda section in Iraq’s Prime Ministry has tasked its affiliated media and reporters to make reports on this ridiculous show and air them.
In yet another move, a person identified as Watheq Moussavi has issued a statement in Najaf on behalf of Mullah Mohammad Ali Gorgani. In the statement he has asked for total annihilation of Ashraf residents. Part of the statement reads, “The PMOI in Ashraf who are fighting against believers are an infidel group and should be completely and entirely annihilated. There is no difference between this organization and other enemies of Islam with the exception that they are more infidel and more hypocrite…. Camp Ashraf is an imminent threat because it is a refuge for al-Qaeda and infidel Baathists…”
Gorgani, a mullah living in city of Qum in Iran and supporter of Iranian regime’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, never had an office in Najaf.
The Iranian Resistance draws the attention of United Nations, Special Representative of Secretary-General, UNAMI, U.S. and EU to the mullahs’ regime’s conspiracies for launching a new bloodbath in Ashraf, and asks them to take urgent action to stop Iraqi government’s obstructions against the UNHCR’s measures and the process for reaffirmation of Ashraf residents’ refugee status.
