Iran Praises French Police Raid on MKO Headquarters: "No Safe Place for Terrorists"

Iran's top human rights official has lauded a recent French police operation against the Mujahedin Khalq Organization (MKO) in a Paris suburb, asserting that there will be "no safe place for terrorists."

Kazem Gharibabadi, head of the Iranian Judiciary’s High Council for Human Rights, expressed the Islamic Republic's approval of the raid in a post on X on Thursday. The French police targeted the MKO’s main headquarters in Saint-Ouen-l'Aumône, leading to the detention of at least three members and the sealing of the premises.

“We welcome the attack of the French police on the main headquarters of the MKO terrorist group, thorough inspection of the headquarters, the arrest of three members of the faction, and the sealing of this headquarters. This operation was monitored live by Iran,” Gharibabadi stated. He emphasized, "Iran will leave no safe place for terrorists."

France’s security forces conducted the raid on Wednesday, targeting the MKO’s TV studio, which led to the group substituting live programming with archival content for several hours. The operation also uncovered a cache of weapons hidden in the headquarters, further implicating the group in ongoing terrorist and criminal activities.

The MKO, also known as the People's Mujahedin of Iran (MEK), has a notorious history, responsible for the deaths of thousands of Iranian civilians over the past four decades. Initially founded on an Islamic ideology with Marxist elements, the group later fully embraced Marxism, gaining widespread notoriety.

During the 1980s, the MKO sided with Saddam Hussein in the Iran-Iraq war but fell out of favor with Baghdad following the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003. Despite its controversial past, the recent French police action against the MKO headquarters underscores the ongoing efforts to combat terrorist activities associated with the group.
