A senior Iranian commander calls it a US tactic to use terrorists for cheap warfare, commenting on the State Department’s recently removing the Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) terrorist group from its list of terrorist organizations.
Deputy Commander of Iran’s Armed Forces Chiefs of Staff, Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri said, “The US tactics include using terrorist groups to wage cheap wars against those who oppose it (Washington).”
Referring to the act of delisting, which took place in late September, he said, “The US act of removing the name of the group from the list of terrorist groups has only taken place for blatant use of the group against the interests of the Islamic Republic of Iran.”
“The US and its allies, by removing the group’s name from the list of terrorist groups, are trying to psychologically prepare the situation so other countries accept them.”
The MKO is listed as a terrorist organization by much of the international community and has committed numerous terrorist acts against Iranians and Iraqis.
“The MKO have, over the past three decades, been invariably in the service of foreign intelligence services, especially [those belonging to] the global arrogance and the Zionist regime of Israel,” the Iranian commander noted.
“There are hundreds of terrorist and espionage acts in the group’s track record, which have been undertaken on behalf of the Zionist regime [of Israel] and the US against the Iranian nation.”
