The Mujahedin-e Khalq (MeK) has claimed a major attack on their exile camp in Iraq’s Diyala Province, Camp Ashraf, saying the troops attacked the camp and killed 52.
Their version of the story is that the troops attacked the camp out of nowhere, set fires and killed the people and then left. Iraqi officials deny all of these claims, and while hospital officials claim two Iraqi soldiers killed by camp residents, they had no information on casualties inside the camp itself.
This isn’t the first time Camp Ashraf has been an issue between the MeK, a formerly US-listed terrorist organization with eyes on violent regime change in Iran, as the current Iraqi government enjoys good relations with Iran and wants the camp evacuated. If confirmed this would be by far the single large incident of violence within the camp in years, and rivaling an early 2011 raid which saw 34 killed and 318 wounded.
The MeK has had a site at Ashraf since 1986, when it was welcomed by Saddam Hussein’s government and used as an auxiliary during the Iran-Iraq War. The group has had its residents steadily resettled from the camp for years, with the Iraqi government hoping to see them removed from the nation outright.

There was no Iraq troops involved. This was the result of infighting in the camp.
The Iraqi government has denied any involvement.
Officials said MKO members attacked an army brigade responsible for the camp after the incident, killing four Iraqi soldiers and injuring four others.
Ali al-Moussawi, a spokesman for Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, confirmed that some MKO members had been killed, but said the deaths were the result of infighting among the camp residents. Many MEK has escaped from the camp because they could not bare the suffereing in the hand of Masood Rajavi, the terrorist "leader" of MEK. According to many memembers, especially women, who flee the camp, Rajavi, favored terrorist of the US/Israel, were raped by Rajavi. You can find the confession of these women about the RAPE by MEK 'leader" on the net.
You believe the government that is being bought and paid for by the mullahs? C'mon be realistic here, it's hard to believe that infighting would be the cause when there have been massacres before.
Iraq is a rogue state that should be bombed into submission. Wait, it has already been done ! The results seem rather ambiguous, but, hey, this shouldn't discourage Kerry's call for war in Syria.
This is so sad. The world is going down…
A guys from Québec.
So the Iraqi regime bought and paid for by Iran is attacking the only active dissident group outside Iran? No surprise there.
This terrorist group was prostituting for an Arab dictator called Saddam against their own country. One way or another, they must pay for their crimes.
