One of the most epic confrontations in the world’s history of nationalist wars and liberation movements took place on April 8, 2011

in Ashraf, Iraq, the seat of the Iranian opposition movement which is spearheaded by 1000 heroines.The PMOI freedom fighters stood up to a column of ten armored, infantry, mechanized brigades and battalions of the Iraqi forces affiliated with Tehran’s supreme leader Ali Khamenei, who attacked Ashraf City at the behest of the Iranian regime to massacre all of its defenseless residents, destroy the city and annihilate the opposition.The freedom fighters, women and men, young and old, were empty handed without any shields. Their heads and hearts were targeted by snipers. At least 22 people were ran over by armored vehicles. Residential units were shelled. Iraqi troops did not allow the wounded to be taken to hospital.The shooting of heavy armored vehicles and snipers continued incessantly for six hours. The plan was to massacre all the residents of Ashraf. 180 people were shot directly. A number of hostages died in captivity. Some 300 people were wounded.In the history of nationalist and revolutionary wars, there never was an instance where people stood empty handed, and only with their unshielded bodies, in front of armored vehicles and armed forces of the enemy and yet

succeed to repel them.

The attack was another link in the long chain of plots, siege, and murder of the Iranian opposition members carried out by Tehran’s puppet in Iraq, Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. But Ashraf residents stood firm and resolved to prevent the enemy from taking over the city which was the beating heart of the Iranian people’s Resistance movement.On that day, eight women and 28 men were killed either by the Iraqi Army snipers or were ran over by armored vehicles. Hundreds more were seriously wounded, some by grenades thrown to explode among them.

The price was horrendous but these brave women and men managed to stop the enemy’s advancement and save Ashraf, the Iranian people’s bastion of freedom. They proved that they can overcome any force by their amazing steadfastness and resolve and by paying the dear price.This was not only a military confrontation, but a staunch defense of the most sacred humane values inspiring people to fight for freedom and equality.In this epic picture, there were eight women who fought and died in the forefront of the confrontations but foiled a major conspiracy by the mullahs by their sacrifice, courage and steadfastness. They symbolized the resolve and sincerity of a generation of women, 1000 heroines who pioneer and lead the Iranian Resistance movement and comprise an unprecedented asset to the Iranian people’s 100-year history of struggle for freedom, an amazing force for change. If and when they overcome the misogynous Godfathers of fundamentalism and terrorism in Tehran, not only will they change the situation in Iran but will have a great impact on the war-torn Middle East and the petrified Europe.
