The exhibition and the persons in charge were not affected by the attack. The terrorists escaped the scene. According to the information obtained, the mullahs' embassy in Oslo had planned and carried out the attack.
On July 5, after a majority in Norway's parliament declared support for the Iranian Resistance, the mullahs' terrorists hurled petrol bombs on a book exhibition of the Resistance's supporters. As a result, all books and publications burned in fire. The attack in summer had been supervised by Mostafa Badparva, one of the regime's diplomat-terrorists in Norway.
In recent months, agents of the mullahs' Intelligence Ministry have on various occasions carried out terrorist operations against the supporters of the Iranian Resistance in Scandinavian countries. These attempts include, among others, an ill-fated attempt to kidnap a female sympathizer of the Mojahedin and an attack on the home of another supporter, in Stockholm, Sweden, in early December, and another attack on a car belonging to an active supporter of the Resistance in Copenhagen.
The Iranian Resistance draws the attention of the relevant authorities in Scandinavian countries to terrorist and intelligence gathering operations of the agents of the clerical regime against the supporters of the Iranian Resistance. The NCR also urges the government and the Judiciary of Norway to arrest and punish the perpetrators of the recent criminal attack in Oslo and close down the Iranian regime's embassy in that city.
