Brigadier General Vincent Brooks said at the US Central Command in Qatar that cease-fire is currently in effect with members of the People's Mujaheddin, an alias for the Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MEK), one of 34 groups listed as Designated Foreign Terrorist Organizations by the U.S. Department of State. He said there have been "encounters of various sorts" with the group in Iraq, including "targeting them with lethal fire." Coalition special operations forces began negotiations with the group, Brooks said. "At this point, a cease-fire is in effect, and some of the People's Mujaheddin have put down their weapons and are moving into what can best be described as assembly areas. They do have combat equipment, but [are] in a non-combat formation," Brooks said. He also added: “the US has put MKO in terrorist list and their position has not changed yet. We consider them as terrorists until there’s no change. How we treat them, is still to be decided. It’s still too soon to comment on it.” BBC, in an analysis about comments of Brooks, said: Gen. Brooks has not commented about the fate of Mojahedin and whether they’re allowed to stay in Iraq or no. From his sayings, it can be understood that MKO’s military wing has surrendered itself to US forces and now the decision about them is dependent to the US.
