Reuters: missile bombardment injures 40 at Camp Liberty


Iran Focus

London, 5 Jul – In a report Monday night, Reuters said that a missile bombardment had injured more than 40 residents of Camp Liberty, home to the opposition People’s Mujahideen Organisation of Iran (PMOI or MEK).

The bombardment caused major destruction in the camp, including fires and deep craters, Shahin Gobadi, a Paris-based spokesperson for the PMOI said.  Another PMOI spokesperson, Shahriar Kia, said that the group suspected “Iraqi groups affiliated with the Iranian” government were responsible for the 50 mortar rounds.

Reuters further reported that the PMOI has come under attack several times in Iraq. Their camp, near the airport, was last shelled in October. It was not clear, Reuters said, if any of the airport’s facilities were hit in this latest attack on Camp Liberty.

Separately AFP reported: “A number of rockets fell on Camp Liberty,” Baghdad Operations Command spokesman Saad Maan said in a statement, referring to the camp where the PMOI members are housed.
