The Mujahedeen-e Khalq terrorist group has claimed responsibility for the assassination of at least 34 members of Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps in Kurdistan Province of Iran, 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. 161 of the Journal of Mujahid, the group’s main press organ during early years of the 80s.
According to the confession, between June 27 and June July 6, 1983, as the result of MKO’s mining operations in Kurdistan Province of Iran, some of which were operated in collaboration with KDP’s Peshmarga, at least 85 IRGC forces were killed.
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.
