The Berlin, Germany office of a prominent Iranian resistance group was attacked on Monday morning by Iran regime terrorists sparking concerns about foreign agents operating within Canada.
It’s the third attack of its kind on the Mojahedin-e-Khalq’s (MEK) political arm so far this year. News of the attack comes on the heels of an investigation that an estimated 700 foreign agents are covertly operating in Canada on behalf of Iran’s Islamist theocracy.
The NCRI’s Paris arm claims the attack was orchestrated by agents loyal to the Islamic Republic.
The assailants have yet to be identified but Berlin police confirmed that a side window on the ground floor has been shattered and was used in an attempt to set the building on fire. Police also found petrol cans and a gas bottle on the scene.
Several members of the council were able to extinguish the fire before it spread through the interior. No injuries were reported as a result of the arson.
The NCRI addressed the attack in a statement released on X, “On the morning of December 4, 2023, at 2:15 am, the representation office of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) in Berlin was attacked by terrorists and mercenaries of the mullahs’ regime.”.
“The assailants, affiliated with the mullahs’ Ministry of Intelligence (MOIS), initiated the attack by throwing incendiary materials towards the building. This led to a fire on the exterior walls of the structure, which was subsequently extinguished by the office personnel. Firefighters and the police arrived at the scene, launching an investigation,” the NCRI continued.
“It is worth noting that this incident follows two previous attacks on May 31, 2023 and June 11, 2023, when a building belonging to the NCRI supporters in northern Paris was targeted by terrorists and mercenaries associated with the Quds Force and the MOIS. Six gunshots and incendiary materials were used in that attack.”
“As the Iranian Resistance has repeatedly stated, appeasement with the mullahs’ regime and actions such as the release of Assadollah Assadi, a terrorist diplomat responsible for organizing a bomb attack at the Iranian Resistance gathering in Villepinte, Paris in June 2018, have more emboldened this regime in terrorist crimes.”
The recent investigation revealing an estimated 700 Iranian regime agents are covertly operating in Canada makes the threat of a similar attack happening in Canada a real possibility.
“We have about 700 names right now that either have temporary residence, permanent residence or citizenship that are in Canada and that are somehow regime affiliates,” said Ramin Joubin, a lawyer from British Columbia, who compiled that database which tracked the number of Iranian regime members operating in Canada.
“They came to Canada knowing this was going to be their safe haven,” he said.
Earlier this month, Conservative Leader Pierre Poilievre called for an immediate response to the investigation, calling the information “shocking.”
“To think that we might have terrorist-linked Iranian regime thugs operating with impunity, spending stolen money and intimidating Canadian Jews and Iranians is appalling,” said Poilievre.
“Who would ever have thought eight years ago that our allies would think Canada is too dangerous a place to go,” he said.
Additionally, the Conservative leader is calling for more sanctions against Iran, as well as the creation of a registry for foreign agents.
On Oct. 21. A letter by the Council of Iranian Canadians co-signed by the Ukrainian Canadian Congress demanded that the Liberal government take further action to condemn the nation’s Islamist regime following the death of Mahsa Amini while in police custody.
The letter was sent to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and several other Liberal cabinet ministers calling on Ottawa to immediately list the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist entity and seize assets of sanctioned Iranians.
“The Iranian regime is a danger to global security – providing training, arms, and personnel to several of non–state terrorist entities as well as to other authoritarian state supporters of terrorism, such as Syria and Russia,” wrote the council.
“(Canada must” immediately) list the IRGC – which is complicit in and responsible for violence against Iranians, Ukrainians, Jews, and others – as a terrorist entity, and sanction it accordingly.”
The Liberal party has yet to declare the IRGC as a terrorist organization.
