According to SAS secret report blames Mojahedin-e Khalq for killing six British soldiers
A secret report by SAS, which has been leaked to the media, claims that elements of Mojahedin Khalq were involved in the killing of 6 British soldiers.
Western Mail daily, quoting parts of this report, wrote: "last June, MKO members killed 6 British soldiers in the city of Majar Al-Kabir, south of Iraq."
The city of Majar Al-Kabir witnessed a wide battle between British soldiers and Iraqi people in which six soldiers were killed and some others injured.
At that time, it was said that these soldiers were killed by the people, but now this secret report blames MKO for the killings.
Western Mail has published no more details but has quoted the father of one of the killed soldiers in the region of Wales saying he believes the report is political and that he doesn’t accept its content.
The father of Thomas Richard Keys said he believes that Defense Ministry has prepared a political report by blaming Mojahedin-e Khalq.
The killing of these soldiers last year put labor party under heavy pressure.
Abbas Fazil, An Iraqi police officer, had told UK media at that time that angry people of Majar Al-Kabir had killed UK soldiers to revenge for the killing of their townsmen.
However, some claimed that Iran may be involved in Majar unrest.
A day after the incident, John Major, former UK PM, claimed in an radio interview that attacking British forces in Iraq may have been conducted from outside this country.
He said: "we should look carefully to see what's happened and who has done it, since it seems that attackers have intentionally targeted easier targets."
Major added: "It may have been done by a local group, a criminal band or Saddam supporters."
"But there are also two worse scenarios; one is that attackers may belong to Shiite groups which want to impose themselves by this way. Second, the worst case scenario is that attackers may be non-Iraqis," major said.
Iranian Interior Minister Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli called for tougher measures against the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO, also known as the MEK, PMOI and NCRI) terrorist group by the European Union...
