due to the presence of Mojahedin in Iraq, attacked this group, 60
Kilometers from Baghdad, on Friday night with heavy weapons as well as wit
RPG.7 and machine guns.
Iraqi parties want Mojahedin dismissed
Zab Sathna, political aide
and spokesman for Ahmad Chalabi, announced that: “all non-Iraqi armed
groups, specially Mojahedin-e Khalq, should be dismissed from Iraq as soon
as possible. They have been a part of Ba’th party’s intelligent system and
they’re armed and dangerous. Saddam had used these forces to suppress
people’s uprising in 1991.

forced them to withdraw.

4- A number of Mansouriah people stopped a car belonging to Mojahedin and forced them to deliver the car to the people. But after crying in front of people and with taking advantage of people’s feelings could escape. These guys said to people: “we are Muslims like you. We are your guests. Don’t bother us.” According to witnesses, people of Diali hate this group and express their anger of their presence in different ways.
