WARNING GRAPHIC: Iraq Army Massacres 52 Iranian Dissident Exiles in Cold Blood at Camp Ashraf 1-Sept-13 -- Reports are mounting of a "massacre" by the Iraqi military against a group of Iranian dissidents who have been living in the country since the 1980s.At least 44 Iranian opposition members are believed to have been killed in "Ashraf City," also known as Camp Ashraf, after the refugee camp was stormed by Iraqi security forces Sunday.Many of the dead appeared to have been summarily executed.Arutz Sheva has seen pictures from the scene which appear to show the bodies of at least four detainees lying with their hands bound after apparently being shot at point blank range.The attack comes less than a week after residents accused the Iraqi government of cutting off water and electricity to the camp, a charge the Iraqi government denied.Ashraf City was built in 1986 by members of the People's Mojahedin Organisation of Iran (PMOI), Iran's main opposition movement, who fled across the border to Iraq to escape persecution by the Islamic regime. After the Iraq War, US forces took control of Ashraf City, reaching an agreement with the PMOI whereby they would give up their weapons in return for "protected persons" status under the Fourth Geneva Convention. They were also subsequently recognized as "asylum seekers" by the UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees). The attacking forces are a few battalions of the Iraqi Army and the Iraqi Special Units, SWAT teams."

    This is only one in many offensive Things that my Brothers and Sisters went to Iraq to stop from happening, Did'nt they do enough of this s**t under Sadaams rule? I had been to Ashraf on a few missions in 2005, The people I met there were some of the nicest folks I had the opportunity to meet while in that SH**hole, This leaves me feeling very sad! and p*ss*d off!!! Two of the victims were school teachers for Gods sake, What the H*LL did they do Wrong??!.
