TEHRAN- Iranian Brigadier General Hossein Salami has criticized the United States’s response to the Iraqi government’s crackdown on the MKO terrorists based in Camp Ashraf.

“The Westerners indicated their blatant support for a veteran terrorist group by the recent stance they adopted,” Salami, who is a senior commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps, told reporters on Sunday.
The Mojahedin Khalq Organization, listed as a terrorist organization by much of the international community, began a campaign of assassinations and bombings in Iran shortly after the victory of the Islamic Revolution in 1979.
The group moved to Iraq in the early 1980s and fought Iran from there until the United States invaded the country in March 2003
