He was the 19th dissident assassinated on Iraqi territory since Khatami has taken office.
The National Council of Resistance of Iran again draws the attention of the international community to the clerical regimes' terrorist activities and freedom of action in Iraqi Kurdistan. It calls for the condemnation of the mullahs' terrorist crimes against Iranian dissidents, particularly in Iraq.
The time has come for the United Nations Security Council to adopt binding decisions and to prevent Iran's criminal rulers from taking advantage of the international community's silence and inaction to continue their repression at home and export terrorism abroad.
