MKO claims responsibility for assassination of nine IRGC forces in West Azerbaijan

The Mujahedeen-e Khalq terrorist group has claimed responsibility for assassination of 9 members of Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps in West Azerbaijan Province, in 1983.
According to Habilian Association database (Specialized Center of Research on the MKO's Crimes), the MKO terrorist group has made the confession in a news published in No. 150 of the Journal of Mujahid, the group’s main press organ during early years of the 80s.
According to the confession, on April 28, 1983, a unit of MKO’s Peshmarge along with agents of the Kurdistan Democratic Party, after capturing three kilometers of the Salmas-Urmia road, destroyed two vehicles and a personnel carrier of IRGC forces by firing RPG rockets. According to this report, during the attack, nine members of the Revolutionary Guard were killed and four injured.
From the beginning of its establishment in first days of the revolution, Army of the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution has been responsible for establishing security and fighting with subversive and terrorist groups in the western provinces of Iran. Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) was one of those groups that in coalition with local terrorist groups and using mercenary units known as Peshmerga, was attempting to sabotage and terrorist operations during the early years of the 80s.
