TEHRAN (FNA)- Habilian Association, an Iran-based human rights group, in a letter called on the US officials to drop support for the anti-Iran terrorist Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) which has carried out numerous terrorist attacks against both Iranian and foreign nationals in the last four decades.

"To conduct a real campaign against terrorism, we, the families of terror victims, expect you to stop supporting and making an instrumental use of the terrorist groups, including the terrorist and anti-human group of Mojahedin-e Khalq, as a tool and move towards the total annihilation of terrorism," a letter by the group said on Tuesday.
Referring to the dark record of the OMK, the letter reminded that the terrorist group is one of the most hated terrorist organizations in the Middle-East, specially among the Iranian, Iraki and Kuwaiti people.
The letter described assassination of seven American attaches and counselors and thousands of other innocent people as well as bomb attacks, plane hijack, aggression, armed robbery and money-laundering as among the other crimes committed by the terrorist group.
The OMK has been in Irak's northern Diyala province since the 1980s.
Irak's security forces took control of Camp Ashraf and detained dozens of the members of the terrorist group last year. The Iraki authority also changed the name of the military center from Camp Ashraf to the Camp of New Irak.
The OMK, whose main stronghold is in Irak, is blacklisted by much of the international community, including the United States.
Before an overture by the EU, the OMK was on the European Union's list of terrorist organizations subject to an EU-wide assets freeze. Yet, the OMK puppet leader, Maryam Rajavi, who has residency in France, regularly visited Brussels and despite the ban enjoyed full freedom in Europe.
Some other ranking members of the OMK who have had a role in the assassination of a large number of Iranian citizens and officials are currently living in France.
The group started assassination of Iranian citizens and officials after the Islamic Revolution in a bid to take control of the newly established Islamic Republic. It killed several of Iran's new leaders in the early years after the Revolution, including the then President, Mohammad Ali Rajayee, Prime Minister, Mohammad Javad Bahonar and the Judiciary Chief, Mohammad Hossein Beheshti who were killed in bomb attacks by OMK members in 1981.
The group fled to Irak in 1986, where it was protected by Saddam Hussein and where it helped the Iraki dictator suppress Shiite and Kurd uprisings in the country.
The terrorist group joined Saddam's army during the Iraki imposed war on Iran (1980-1988) and helped Saddam and killed thousands of Iranian civilians and soldiers during the US-backed Iraki imposed war on Iran.
Many of the OMK members have abandoned the terrorist organization while most of those still remaining in the camp are said to be willing to quit but are under pressure and torture not to do so.
A May 2005 Human Rights Watch report accused the OMK of running prison camps in Irak and committing human rights violations.
According to the Human Rights Watch report, the outlawed group puts defectors under torture and jail terms.
Numerous articles and letters posted on the Internet by family members of OMK recruits confirm reports of the horrific abuse that the group inflicts on its own members and the alluring recruitment methods it uses.
The most shocking of such stories includes accounts given by former British OMK member Ann Singleton and Mustafa Mohammadi -- the father of an Iranian-Canadian girl who was drawn into the group during an OMK recruitment campaign in Canada.
Mohammadi recounts his desperate efforts to contact his daughter, who disappeared several years ago - a result of what the OMK called a 'two-month tour' of Camp Ashraf for teenagers.
He also explains how the group forces the families of its recruits to take part in pro-OMK demonstrations in the western countries by threatening to kill their loved ones.
Lacking a foothold in Iran, the terrorist group recruits ill-informed teens from Iranian immigrant communities in western states and blocks their departure afterwards.
