The US is preventing Interpol from arresting 12 leaders of the MKO terrorist organization, which claimed responsibility for Iran bombings and assassinations

Interpol has issued arrest warrants for 12 leaders of the Mujahedin Khalq Organization (MKO) terrorist organization who are being harbored in Iraq’s Camp Ashraf under the protection of the United States.

As corporate media outlets recently reported, MKO or the People’s The Peoples Mujahideen, is an Israeli terrorist group used to conduct operations against Iran.

The group has claimed responsibility for several terrorist attacks inside of Iran, including bombings and the assassination of Iranian scientists.

U.S. officials tell NBC Israel runs a terrorist organization known to conduct bombings, unconventional warfare, and targeted assassinations throughout the Middle East.

In that same report, I cite news sources who openly admit that the U.S. is protecting the terrorist group in Iraq’s camp Camp Ashraf under a UN treaty to use as a bargaining chip against Iran.

Now, Interpol has issued warrants for the organizations top 12 leaders but reports indicate they are being prevented from arresting the men because they are under U.S. protection.

Interpol issues arrest warrants for 12 terrorist MKO leaders

Interpol has issued arrest warrants for 12 leaders of the anti-Iran terrorist Mujahedin Khalq Organization (MKO), the police department in Iraq’s Diyala province says.

An informed source that requested anonymity said the arrest warrants were issued for involvement of the terrorist leaders in specific illegal activities, including abduction, reported Habilian — an association that brings together families of those killed in terror operations across Iran — on its website.

According to the source, the main obstacle to execute the warrants was the fact that police forces were not authorized to enter the group’s Camp Ashraf to complete their investigations and arrest the wanted individuals.

The source also said that the warrants would go into effect after the departure of MKO members, adding that Iraq reserved the right to pursue the cases of MKO leaders even in other countries.

The MKO is widely listed as a terrorist organization by much of the international community and is responsible for numerous acts of terror and violence against Iraqi civilians as well as Iranian civilians and officials.

Out of the 17,000 Iranians killed in terrorist attacks, 12,000 of them have fallen victim to acts of terror carried out by the MKO.

The group fled to Iraq in 1986, where it enjoyed the support of Iraq’s executed dictator Saddam Hussein and set up Camp Ashraf near the Iranian border.

The Iraqi government had vowed to shut the camp completely by the end of December and move the residents to another location. The government, however, agreed in December 2011 to extend the deadline until April.
