Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman censured the US and the European Union for harboring MKO terrorists, saying that supporters of the terror group have the blood of Iranians on their hands.
“39yrs ago, today, Iran Chief Justice Ayatollah Beheshti & 72senior figures were assassinated by US-, Saddam-backed MEK terrorist cult. Since then, MEK has remained under US/Euro auspices, letting it horribly kill&maim 10000+Iranians. Their blood on terrorist MEK supporters’ hands!” Seyed Abbas Mousavi tweeted on Saturday on the anniversary of the martyrdom of Ayatollah Dr. Beheshti and his companions.
The MKO (MEK) terrorist organization who had a record of assassinating around 12000 high ranking Iranian officials is supported by the US, Saudi Arabia, and Europe.
One of the most terrible of such terrorist attacks by the MKO was the 1981 bombing of the Islamic Republic Party’s headquarters in Tehran. During this terrorist attack, the head of Iran’s Supreme Court, Ayatollah Mohammad Hossein Beheshti, along with 72 of his companions were killed. Many of them were either parliamentarian or held ministerial positions in the cabinet.
