On September, 1, 2013, Iraqi forces on orders from Maliki and the Iranian regime entered the camp killing 52 residents, wounding many others and taking 7 hostages. Further, Maliki’s thugs/criminals set many of the resident’s building and property on fire.
The last time Jafar Behkish saw his brothers, Mahmud and Mohammad Ali, both political activists imprisoned in Iran, they only had 10 minutes to talk through a glass window.
None of them imagined that it would be their last interaction or the horror that would unfold over the following months.
