The Iranian Resistance strongly condemns the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps’ (IRGC) aggression and occupation and the mullahs’ regime affiliated criminal militias in Kirkuk. This aggressive act is taking place while Qassim Soleimani, the head of the terrorist Quds Force, has been plotting for it in Sulaimaniya and Baghdad and other areas of Iraq since a few days ago.
The criminal actions of the IRGC and its militia has led to the homelessness of a large number of Kirkuk’s residents and their inevitable departure from the city.
Published news reports and photographs and films indicate the presence of Hadi Ameri and Abu Mehdi Mohandes, two heads of the terrorist Quds Force, in the attack on Kirkuk. The documents and reports about these two terrorists have been disclosed by the Iranian Resistance since 90’s. The names of both mercenaries are seen on the list of 32000 Iraqi mercenaries of the IRGC, with the codes and monthly salary and their bank account numbers disclosed by the Resistance in 2005 to United Nations officials and permanent members of the Security Council, especially the United States. It was also made public in a press conference in Paris. The number of Mohandes in the list is 3829770 and that of Ameri is 3829597.
While expressing solidarity with the people of Kurdistan, especially the suffering and homeless people of Kirkuk, the Iranian Resistance calls for immediate formation of the UN Security Council’s extraordinary meeting to condemn and confront the aggression and occupation conducted by the mullahs’ regime in Iraqi Kurdistan.
On October 13, following the announcement of the US new strategy on the mullahs’ regime and placing the Revolutionary Guards in the terrorist list, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, once again called for the eviction of the mullahs’ regime from the region and the expulsion of IRGC and mercenaries from Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Lebanon and Afghanistan, and preventing the sending of weapons and regime’s forces to these countries.
