missile-attack-camp-libertyAt 20.35 local time today (Monday, July 4) Camp Liberty came under heavy rocket attack.

In this criminal attack, which was carried out by the militias affiliated to the regime’s terrorist IRGC Quds Force in Iraq, more than 50 rockets were fired at Camp Liberty, a number of which struck outside the camp perimeter.

A number of Camp Liberty residents were injured, but fortunately no one was martyred, in the rocket attack on the camp this evening.

The missile barrage caused major destruction and widespread fire in the camp, leaving craters seven feet wide and 5 feet deep. Parts of the residents’ property and trailers were destroyed.

The rocket attack took place while in the past eight days Iraqi forces have in an inhuman act prevented the entry of fuel, food and medicine into the camp and the blockade is continuing. (Watch the Video)

Abolish death penalty

Please Sign our Petition

Dear Secretary General of United Nations,

The number of executions is rising in Iran, journalists are being detained for doing their job and activists face cruel and degrading punishments, long prison terms and even execution. According to the most recent reports by Amnesty International and the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child, “Iran’s judiciary continues to sentence child offenders to death, and carry out their execution by hanging”. Also, on August 9th, 2016 the son of late Ayatollah Hossein Ali Montazeri, Khomeini’s designated successor in 1988, published a shocking audio tape of his father’s meeting with the “Death Commission” which summarily and extra-judicially executed tens of thousands of political prisoners held in jails across Iran. The massacre was carried out on the basis of a fatwa by the regime’s then-Supreme Leader Khomeini.

We, the undersigned, hereby urge you to take up this issue and raise it in the General Assembly in order to;

1. Put pressure on Iran to immediately halt the executions and abolish death penalty in Iran.
2. Call on all Western governments to make any improvement in economic relations with Iran contingent on its human rights record.
3. Demand in its resolution on human rights violations in Iran, to bring the perpetrators of 1988 massacre (one of the worst atrocities the post-war world has ever seen – Geoffrey Robertson-QC) to justice before an international tribunal.

Executions must stop.
