According to reports received from within Iran, Shamkhani, the clerical regime’s Security Council Secretary and Qassem Soleimani, commander of the terrorist Qods Force, other Iranian Revolutionary Guards met last week with Maliki, his national security adviser Faleh Fayyaz and other Iraqi political and security officials. Shamkhani demanded increased pressure and intensification of suppressive measures against Liberty residents.

Abolfazl Zohrevand accompanied Shamkhani and Soleimani on this trip. Zohrevand, senior adviser to Shamkhani in terrorist operations, is a known regime diplomat-terrorist, and a former ambassador to Italy and Afghanistan.

On this visit, Zohrevand had several meetings with Maliki aides in order to conspire against Liberty residents. Zohrevand demanded ever-increasing pressure on PMOI/MEK members and told Iraqi government officials that Liberty residents should not feel safe.

Zohrevand emphasized that the Iranian and Iraqi governments must, in a joint plan of action, make the environment for residents of Liberty increasingly less secure and more intolerable.

The Iranian Resistance, before the missile attack of June 15, 2013 on Liberty had warned in its statement of May 15, 2013 about the Zohrevand trip to Iraq in order to strike a blow to PMOI/MEK on the eve of the mullahs presidential election. US and UN officials were forewarned of the details of the issue.
