An Iranian court has sentenced two members of the anti-Iran terrorist Mujahedin-e-Khalq Organization (MKO) to 16 years in prison for their involvement in plots against the country’s national security
On Monday, a court convicted the two, who were only identified by their initials, for spreading corruption on earth, conspiring against the Islamic Republic, and spreading fake news against the country.
The two terrorists were arrested while committing a terrorist attack inside Iran in spring 2019.
The two had previously committed terrorist attacks in several areas across the capital Tehran.
The MKO has conducted numerous assassinations and bombings against Iranian statesmen and civilians since the 1979 victory of Iran’s Islamic Revolution. Its members fled Iran in 1986 to Iraq, where they enjoyed backing from former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein.
