Head of the public relations office of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) said on Saturday the Mojahedin Khalq Organization (MKO) has gone down in history and is no longer alive.

"The Munafiqeen (MKO) is dead and the lid of its coffin has been nailed down," Second Brigadier General Ramazan Sharif said, attending a memorial ceremony in Kashan, ISNA reported.
"This terrorist group, which is backed by some European and Arab countries, fought against Iran during the imposed war (the Iraq-Iran war) and killed our youths."
The MKO has existed as an Islamist-Marxist group since 1965, when it fought the Shah regime. It carried out a number of attacks against U.S. soldiers stationed in Iran and years later it was put on the U.S. State Department terrorist list.
After the 1979 Islamic Revolution, however, the group resorted to bombings and assassinations. Iran sees the group responsible for the death of 17,000, according to Hossein Mousavian, former Iranian ambassador to Germany and current researcher at the University of Princeton.
"And now, after committing all these atrocities, the terrorist group is being revived by some countries to fight the Islamic Republic of Iran," he added.
Ramazan Sharif further said the "suspicious efforts" made by some countries to revive the terrorist group are doomed to fail and they cannot bring this lifeless entity back to life by using infamous political figures who have supported terrorist acts in the region and even in Europe and America.
