TEHRAN – Major General Qassem Soleimani, commander of the IRGC Quds Force, has said in a message that the mokebs (tents) which provide Arbaeen pilgrims with services are to be put up in flood-stricken areas in Khouzestan and Lorestan provinces for a month in order to help the people.

Citing the problems affecting the people after severe floods hit many parts of the country, General Soleimani said he and other military commanders feel responsible to share their experiences and provide services for those affected by the natural disaster, Mehr reported on Friday.

At least 60 people have died and hundreds more injured in severe floods that affected large parts of Iran, especially the west and southwestern provinces.
