Enlightenment Tips on the Destructive Flood in Iran

By Masoud Dalvand – Freedom Star

There are a few important points and questions about destructive flood in Iran. The answers to these questions can show why the extent of destruction has been so widespread.

As Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the president-elect of the Iranian Resistance, said in her message to Iranian people regarding the flood;

This disaster once again proved that the ruling mullahs’ criminal 40-year policy of plunder and pillage has taken a heavy toll on the lives and livelihood of our people in every flood and earthquake.
Why did so many of our fellow compatriots die and get injured in Shiraz after just a 10-minute rainfall, with such huge destruction?

The corrupt mullahs have inflicted this catastrophe on Shiraz and its valiant people. They destroyed the channel which used to lead flood waters out. In the dry seasonal river bed beside Darvazeh Quran, they built urban facilities to gain huge profits for themselves and their accomplice.

In Golestan Province, it has been several years that they have failed to dredge the Gorgan River. They have destroyed vast parts of the forests and pastures, and they have evaded to drain the farms and manage the watershed.

In other cities, they have constructed buildings in the periphery of rivers or have blocked the natural paths of rivers. In implementing such a corrupt policy, they have taken over, damaged or sold river banks, sea shores, foothills of mountains, and jungles which are public properties.

Amid the disastrous flood and such vast devastation, there is not much presence of aid workers and relief agencies. Instead, the mullahs have dispatched the Revolutionary Guard Corps and the Bassij paramilitary force to quell the outbreak of protests.

Shiraz needs emergency aid for the injured and assistance to clear the ruins and rubble, but Rouhani hastily sends there his Minister of Intelligence and his mafia of executions, suppression and terror.

This is not the first time that Shiraz is facing heavy rainfalls. However, in recent years, the non-regulatory construction of roads and buildings by the IRGC and other bodies of the regime have resulted in obstructing the traditional network of rainwater that protects the city for hundreds of years, and allowed the overflow of water through the main gate of the city.

The residents of Shiraz insist that provincial authorities have not taken recent weather warnings seriously and have not evacuated residents or banned traffic through the Ghoran gate.
In addition to the province of Fars, dozens of people have also lost their lives or been injured in the provinces of LorestanKhuzestanSistan-BaluchestanIsfahanBushehrIlamKermanshahGolestan and other parts of the country.
In Sarpol-Zohab, a city hit last year by an earthquake, the floods washed away the tents and prefabs of a population that had already been severely damaged, neglected by the regime.
The situation in the city of Ahvaz is critical, with a strong flood of the river Karoun. As in Lorestan, where the Poleh-Dokhtar River has overflowed.

Maryam Rajavi affirmed that the mullahs’ regime and its corrupt leaders as well as its Pasdaran Army (IRGC) have intensified to the utmost the effects of this destructive flood through the destruction of the environment, and have rendered the Iranian cities and villages to ruins by plundering the people’s belongings and wasting them in projects of repression, terrorism and war mongering as well as anti-Iranian nuclear and missile programs, depriving them of the least infrastructure to defend against natural disasters like earthquakes and floods.
