Flash flooding in southern and parts of western Iran reached a new level on Monday while Iranian social media users harshly criticizing the authorities for their handling of the disaster.
At least 30 of Iran’s 31 provinces witnessed flood conditions as reports indicate at least 120 dead in the historic city of Shiraz alone.
At the same time, the regime is trying to hide the real number of victims with the state media reporting 19 people dead.
The disaster comes during Iranian New Year, Nowruz, holidays when many Iranians travel in the country.
Flooding also killed one person in Sar-Pol Zahab county in the western Kermanshah Province, where some residents still live in temporary cabins. They are trying to restore or re-build houses and apartments damaged by a strong earthquake that took hundreds of lives last year.
The lives of those who live close to the banks of the Arvand river, are also at risk amid the possibility of an overflow.
Dozens of people have also lost their lives or been injured in the provinces of Lorestan, Khushistan, Sistan-Baluchestan, Isfahan, Bushehr, Ilam, Kermanchah, Golestan and other parts of the country.
Reports from flood victims indicate that the regime has failed to provide much needed aid to flood stricken areas. News from various cities show a very bleak image of innocent people left without any support.
