Fox News Coverage of MEK Resistance Units’ Activities After Soleimani’s Death
Reflection of the Activities of the MEK Resistance Units by Fox News Television
On January 4, 2020, the American Fox News broadcast a report about the activities of the Resistance Units of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI, Mujahedin-e Khalq or MEK) and the Iranian people’s happiness after the death of the regime’s chief terrorist Qassem Soleimani.
Soleimani who was the chief of the Iranian regime’s terrorist Islamic Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) Quds Force was responsible for the death of hundreds of thousands of people in Iran and across the world.
Mr. Eric Shawn, the host of the Fox News’ “America’s News HQ,” read a statement by Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the president-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), over Soleimani’s elimination.
He quoted Mrs. Rajavi’s statement as saying, “Qassem Soleimani was one of the most vicious criminals of Iran’s history. The time has come for the victory of the Iraqi people’s uprising and the liberation of Iraq from the Iranian regime’s occupation.”

The banners read, “Soleimani’s elimination expedites regime’s overthrow,” “The Iranian resistance has pledged to overthrow the regime,” “Iran will be free through uprising and resistance units,” and “IRGC centers must be demolished.”
On January 3, Qassem Soleimani along with Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the head of Iraq's suppressive Bassij, were killed in a U.S. military airstrike in Iraq.
As Mrs. Rajavi has stated Soleimani “was personally involved in the massacre of hundreds of thousands of people in the region and in driving millions of others from their homes. He was also the mastermind of the massacre of the Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK) in Camp Ashraf in Iraq, and of many other terrorist operations against the Iranian Resistance in that country, in Iran, and in other countries.”
Mrs. Rajavi added: “The international community, especially the European Union, must end the policy of appeasement and recognize the right of the Iranian people to resist and rise for freedom to replace popular sovereignty in place of the mullahs’ rule.”
