Today is the 18th day that the Iraq government has blocked food, fuel and water to some 3,000 residents are of Camp Liberty in Iraq, reports Eric Shawn of Fox News, quoting the Iranian Resistance.
"They accuse Tehran of using the chaos in the Middle East to squeeze in to try to kill its critics by starving them to death."
The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) has called on US and the United Nations to intervene before it is too late.
"The residents live in a former US military base, Camp liberty and one of a growing humanitarian crisis there. They are accusing Baghdad, acting on behalf of Iran by cutting fuel and electricity," the report said.
"They say food is spoiled in the one hundred twenty degrees heat and is running out. "
"The U.S. has promised to protect the residents of Camp liberty and they are considered protected persons under the Geneva Convention. But that has not stopped the crackdown."
"So far they cite more than one hundred people who had been killed at the group 's facilities and unless the world intervenes there will be even more death."
"The US State Department has previously condemned the attacks and is worked on relocating some of the residents to other nations. But so far, the majority remain at Camp liberty, and their fate is uncertain."
"The National Council of Resistance of Iran, was the first to expose the extent of Iran's secret nuclear program back in 2002, and it is fighting to topple the regime in Tehran," the report said.
