The Mujahedeen-e Khalq terrorist group has claimed responsibility for destroying a border post and killing 18 members of Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps in Sardasht County, 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. 162 of the Journal of Mujahid, the group’s main press organ during early years of the 80s.
According to the confession, on July 8 and July 9 1983, a group of MKO agents invaded a border post in Sardasht named Jamal Kooseh and destroyed it. The news stated that as a result of that attack, 18 members of Iranian Revolutionary Guards were killed.
Invading outposts, were among the common techniques of terror practiced by MKO during the early years of the 80s throughout Iranian Western provinces.
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.
