/ Aswat al-Iraq: A renegade from the anti-Iran opposition group
Mujahadeen-e-Khalq (MEK) (aka People’s Mujahedin of Iran or PMOI)
revealed that the organization was involved in suppressing the 1991 al-Intifada al-Shaabaniya against the former regime of Saddam Hussein.

“MEK played a prominent role in repressing the intifada
in the southern Iraqi cities in 1991 as it sent forces from the
organization to the cities of al-Amara and Diala, as the former regime
did not rely on its soldiers more than relying on the MEK fighters in
this particular respect,” Batoul Soltani said in a press conference she
held in Baghdad on Saturday.
