Over the weekend thousands of Iranian Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) Troops crossed into Iraq and attacked Iraqi Kurdish villages.
According to an article by Kenneth Timmerman in Newsmax, the Revolutionary Guards are targeting basis for Free Life Party of Kurdistan (PJAK), a Kurdish/Iranian opposition group currently operating in Iran.
According to this news article PJAK guerilla fighters confirmed the death of 108 Revolutionary Guards while 200 more were injured during the attacks. Seven PJAK fighters also lost their lives.
While the Revolutionary Guards were busy invading Iraq and attacking Kurdish activists, Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and the Prime Minister of the Kurdish Regional Government Dr. Barham Salih left for China to encourage Chinese investment in Iraq.
It is not surprising that the Iraqi Government has remained silent in the face of these attacks, what is surprising is the silence of Iranian opposition. If there was ever a time to be outraged and to speak out this is it.
Once again the Islamic Regime has taken it upon itself to cross borders and attack an opposition group in a desperate attempt to defeat and silence them.
If we as Iranian opposition and activists remain silent today there is no telling what the Regime will do tomorrow and who it will attack next!
I urge all opposition groups and independent activists to take a strong stand against these attacks, in order to prevent the Regime from carrying out such attacks in the future.
Just a reminder:
“First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.
Down with Islamic Regime in Iran
Long Live Freedom in Iran
