TEHRAN (IQNA) –  Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah slammed the US’s move to block aid efforts to flood-stricken areas in Iran.


In a statement on Sunday, Hezbollah said the move showed the “savage” behavior of the US.

It further praised fortitude, steadfastness, resolve and solidarity of the Iranian people in facing the flooding, Al-Manar reported.

Hezbollah also condemned the Trump administration for planning to designate the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist group while the IRGC, along with other Iranian Armed Forced, has played a major role in providing help to the victims of the natural disaster.

The resistance group further offered condolences to the Leader of the Islamic Revolution and the Iranian nation and government for the loss of lives in the recent floods in the country.

Record spring rainfall that has battered Iran in the past weeks caused serious flooding in many areas, mainly the provinces of Golestan, Lorestan, Khuzestan, Fars and Ilam, forcing thousands to leave their homes.

While residents in some western areas are still in need of relief aid, the Army Ground Force, the IRGC, and Basij have deployed forces, heavy military machinery, aircraft and boats to the disaster zones.

The death toll in the disaster is now reported to be at least 70.
