Iran, April 14, 2019 - As floodwaters continue to ravage lives in Iran’s west and southwest provinces of Khuzestan, Lorestan, Ilam, and Kermanshah, reports from the provinces of Hormozgan and Bushehr in the south, Khorasan Razavi in the northeast and Yazd in central Iran also indicate dangerous flood conditions.
Five people in Khuzestan and one in Ilam have lost their lives recently in the recent flood disasters.
Locals of a flooded village were outraged and expressed their protests to Karim Zobeidi, the special representative of the regime’s Oil Minister Bizhan Zanganeh. People are demanding the state to provide aid and are protesting why their farms have been flooded while the state refuses to take action.
Water has been spewing on the road of Darkhovin in Khuzestan Province and escalating water levels are placing even more lives in danger.
109 schools in Khuzestan Province have been severely damaged or even destroyed due to floodwaters and 461 other schools are taking measures to protect what facilities they can, according to the provincial Education Department chief.
Villages on the banks of River Dez near the city of Shush are engulfed in floodwaters and there are no facilities to reach this area.
The regime’s mayor in the town of Shadegan is reporting 20 villages are in poor conditions due to rising floodwaters and three villages have been ordered to evacuate. People across the country are protesting the fact that authorities only issue evacuation orders without providing any facilities for the locals to find refuge in.
In Qeshm Island, southern Iran, water has been rising in the Chabahar neighborhood at 3 am early Sunday morning, local time.
More footage of water in Qeshm Island rising also in the Dargahan bazaar.
Weather warnings are being issued for the provinces of Fars, Hormozgan, Sistan & Baluchistan, Khorasan Razavi, and South Khorasan. This covers areas in the country’s central, southern, eastern and northeastern regions.
Iranian opposition President Maryam Rajavi, head of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), has sent messages of sympathy and encouraging her fellow countrymen and women to rush to the support of those in need, especially considering the fact that the mullahs’ regime is only protecting its own interests.
My heartfelt sympathies are with the flood-stricken people of Khorasan, Hormozgan & those threatened with #floods in Kerman, Yazd, Isfahan, Sistan & Balouchestan. I emphasize the need to stand ready to assist with the formation of popular councils.#IranFloods #Iran— Maryam Rajavi (@Maryam_Rajavi) April 13, 2019
I call on youth in Khorasan, Kerman, Sistan & Balouchestan, Yazd, Isfahan & Fars in #Iran to quickly rise like the courageous youth of Khouzestan to protect our compatriots from flood damages. #IranFloods— Maryam Rajavi (@Maryam_Rajavi) April 13, 2019
