An official medical source in Diyala province said that a member of the Iranian group, Mojahedin Khalq (MKO, MEK, NCRI, Rajavi cult) has committed suicide on Tuesday evening by hanging himself inside his room in Camp Ashraf, north of Baquba. He also added that the claim of suicide (by the leaders of the camp) is being investigated and the real cause of death will be announced soon.
In an interview with “Alsumaria News” the source said that “a medical team stationed inside the Camp Ashraf, 55 km north of Baquba received a communication from the camp about a case of suicide of one of the members of Mojahedin Khalq. The case is under investigation to verify whether the man has committed suicide by hanging himself inside his room”.
The source also said that “another investigation is underway to determine the main reason that has prompted someone in the Iranian opposition to commit suicide in this way”.
The Iraqi forces took control of the camp and have provided protection to the camp since 2009. During this time there have also been several clashes between Iraqi forces and members of Mojahedin Khalq which has ended with the occurrence of casualties on both sides.
Camp Ashraf or what is known now as “Camp New Iraq” houses more than 3000 Iranian Mojahedin Khalq dissidents (MKO, MEK, NCRI, Rajavi cult). The organization moved its HQ to this place nearly 3 decades ago.
