Iraqi Shi’ite militia claims attack on exiled Iranian opposition – Fars

The commander of Iraq’s Shi’ite Muslim al-Mukhtar Army militia claimed responsibility on Friday for a deadly rocket attack on a camp holding members of an exiled Iranian opposition group near Baghdad, according to Iran’s Fars news agency. About 15 rockets crashed near the camp of the People’s Mujahideen Organisation of Iran (PMOI) next to Baghdad International Airport on Thursday and killed 23 of its members, a Paris-based spokesman for the group said. “We warned the members of this terrorist organization to leave Iraq as soon as possible … If they don’t do so, there will more similar attacks,” al-Mukhtar Army commander Wathiq al Battat was quoted as saying by Fars.
