Iran: Expressing Condolences & Sympathy With the Quake-Stricken People, Encouraging Youth to Help the Injured

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, expressed her condolences to the families who have lost their loved ones in the last night earthquake in different areas, including Qasr-e Shirin, Islamabad, Sar-e pol Zahab, Salas Babajani and Kerend.

Reiterating the criminal background of the mullahs’ regime’s neglect and irresponsibility to save the people’s lives in such incidents, Mrs. Rajavi asked the youth, especially those in western provinces, to rescue the people who are trapped under debris, and to deliver their aids directly to the stricken people and the injured. She added that just opposite to the Velayat-e faqih regime, it is now a time of solidarity, and helping the stricken people and saving them is a sacred national duty.

In fear of the people’s anger, the clerical regime is trying to cover the real dimensions of the material damages and casualties of this earthquake that completely destroyed some parts of the Kermanshah province. The government media has been speaking of about 350 dead and 6,000 injured by noon today, while the number of victims is much more and many of the injured are at risk of losing their lives due to lack of least medical facilities.

At 2:00 PM today (Monday, November 13), the IRGC brigadier Mohammad Ali Jafari, commander of the Revolutionary Guards, tried to minimize the extent of casualties in an interview with the regime’s TV, and said that there were only a few people left under the rubble, and necessary aid has already reached all stricken areas or will reach before sunset. At the same time, the number of victims of this earthquake is increasing, and according to intuitive witnesses, thousands of people are under debris in remote towns and villages, and have not received minimum aid. The hospitals of the earthquake-stricken areas are not able to accept the injured.

The victims of natural disasters such as earthquakes and floods in Iran under the rule of the mullahs are much higher than world standards because, on the one hand, all assets of the country are plundered by the criminal mullahs, or are spent on domestic repression and the export of terrorism and warfare and atomic projects. And hence, houses in the cities and villages of the country are very vulnerable in the face of these incidents. On the other hand, the regime refuses to employ the necessary facilities for rescuing the stricken people and for the treatment of the injured. In fact its priority is to prevent protests of the stricken people and to prevent the people’s assistance to these areas, or to loot these aids.
