The incident took place on December 5 in the village of Shin Abad in Piranshahr city, which is located in West Azerbaijan Province. 
Speaking to the Persian service of the Mehr News Agency on Monday, Fayyazi said the explanations that the education minister provided about the incident at an open session of the Majlis on Sunday did not convince the MPs. 
“The main problem is that Mr. Minister regards the occurrence of such incidents as natural and does not accept any responsibility. The minister talks about lack of funds to equip schools, while we are witnessing the construction of tens of pools for education officials in various provinces,” the MP stated.
