MKO claims responsibility for the killing of 70 officers in West Azerbaijan

The Mujahedeen-e Khalq terrorist group has claimed responsibility for the assassination of 70 members of Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps in Sardasht, 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. 161 of the Journal of Mujahid, the group’s main press organ during early years of the 80s.
According to the confession, between July 6 and July 14, 1983, more than 70 members of IRGC were killed as the result of MKO’s mining operations in Sardasht County.
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.
