TEHRAN (Tasnim) – An Iraqi source revealed that a large number of victims in a recent attack on the camp of the terrorist Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) were killed by their own colleagues, namely members of the terrorist group.

The terrorist group said that dozens of its members died in a raid on September 1 and blamed the Iraqi security forces for the deaths. Iraqi officials, however, strongly denied the allegations, and said that a preliminary investigation suggested they died as a result of infighting among camp residents.
“In the released video of the recent clashes in Camp Ashraf, footages of the victims of the group showed that most of them had been killed execusion style,” the source added.
“Given its track record in liquidating certain members, MKO took advantage of the incident for more bloodshed and killed its members for propaganda purposes and to play the victim,” the source said.
On September 1, 52 MKO terrorists, including some top commanders, were killed in clashes the MKO’s Camp Ashraf in Iraq’s eastern Diyala province.
