Missile attack of June 15, 2013
On June 15, 2013, Camp Liberty went again under missile barrage. At 1:15 p.m., 40 missiles landed inside the camp, leaving two residents killed and 70 injured. Many of those wounded continue to suffer their injuries. This time, the camp’s gathering centers and dining halls during the residents’ lunch-hour were targeted. The residents and their representatives had warned of such attacks on 11th February 2013. If these warnings were taken seriously, the harms could be averted. If it weren’t for the residents’ awareness and readiness, the number of casualties would have been much higher.
Yet, the Iraqi Camp Management rejected all requests by the residents to build shelters immune to shrapnel.
Following this attack the NCRI obtained a video tape from inside Iran, recorded by Iraqi police from the launch site, exposing the fact that the launch site was a half-constructed building located southeast of Camp Liberty. Supplementary reports show the Quds Force through its Iraqi agents had purchased this real estate and built the mentioned building for this very purpose on this site.
