Iraq – Maliki’s Interior Ministry denies Camp Liberty is hit, rejects casualties!

In the fourth rocket attack, 3 PMOI members were martyred and 71 were injured
Iraq’s Ministry of Interior that is under the control of Maliki himself, today (Friday, December 27), in an ignominious lie denied Camp Liberty has been targeted. Al-Madi Press wrote: the Interior Ministry “denied that the Katyusha rockets that were fired at Baghdad International Airport targeted Iranian dissidents”.

In a hideous lie that only mullahs ruling Iran are expert at, the interior ministry spokesman said, “these rockets landed in a deserted area near the airport, there were no casualties and investigation for determining the party that has been the target is ongoing.”


These absurd falsifications are while last night Associated Press reporting from Baghdad and quoting a “security official” emphasized that Camp Liberty has been attacked by rockets and Reuters similarly wrote, “Police sources confirmed the camp had been targeted by mortars and said four wounded Iranians had been transported to a hospital in western Baghdad.”

These absurd statements are made while expert teams from Iraq’s interior ministry and army are aware of details of this attack that left three dead and 71 injured and know the impact locations of the rockets inside Camp Liberty.

According to reports, until 7 a.m. Friday, impact points of 31 rockets inside Camp Liberty, with an area about half a kilometer square, have been identified and search for other impact points is ongoing. Four 107 mm rockets that hit inside the camp have failed to explode and may explode at any time. The destructive power of some of the missiles that so far two places of their hit have been identified is at least 10 times that of 107 mm rockets.
