the responsibility for defending east of Tigris river was given to Mojahedin-e khalq organization
The head of Iraq's Army Intelligence and Iraq's Envoy to Arab Union http://www.iwpr.net/iraq_index1.html Saddam's war strategy was unique. Saddam used all his military, non-military, and facilities to stay in power. He wanted to leave north and south and focus the defense in Baghdad. He appointed a few groups to the south to stand against UK and US forces, so that when they reach Baghdad they would be tired. I believed that if coalition continued bombing Baghdad, they would be successful in the war. But if they wanted to enter Baghdad on the ground, then we would see a depressing tragedy. Saddam's military army wasn't involved in the wars which took place in south and only Republican Guard and Saddam's Fedayeen resisted in the region. According to Saddam's plans, UK and US forces would meet special forces in the south and west of Baghdad. This special forces was a part of republican guard which was called "Fath Al-Mobin". In the east of Baghdad, MKO forces were settled. This Iranian opposition group had earlier helped Iraqi forces to suppress rebellion in 1991. according to our information, MKO forces were ordered to defend east part (east of Tigris). Those who resisted in the battle were killed.
