April 4, 2019

TEHRAN - Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Leader of the Islamic Revolution, on Wednesday praised national display of solidarity with the victims of the recent floods that swept through large parts of Iran, assuring the nation that the flood damage will be entirely compensated once the rescue efforts are completed.

Talking at a gathering of people, officials and foreign envoys on the occasion marking the appointment of Prophet Muhammad (S) to his divine mission, the Leader said while the initial rescue operations were over, much was left to be done for the people affected by floods and extreme weather conditions.

“Throughout these calamities, the people’s efforts and the sense of affinity and mobilization were superb and the Iranian nation heroically intervened and assisted the authorities,” the Leader stated, according to Press TV.

“It was thanks to this popular assistance and unity that the authorities managed to implement the preliminary measures.”

Ayatollah Khamenei added, “I have stressed to the officials that the main step of reconstruction and compensation comes next and that these losses must be wholly compensated.”

At least 57 people have died and hundreds more injured in severe floods that affected large parts of Iran, especially the west and southwestern provinces, over the past days.
