A thousand homes in the city of Poledokhtar have been evacuated in the past few days, according to a report wired by the semi-official Tasnim news agency citing the city mayor.

Roads leading to 150 villages around the city of Aligudarz, 70 villages near Delfan, 60 villages near Kuhdasht, 15 villages near Poledokhtar and 20 villages near Chegeni have been blocked due to the rising floodwaters.

Iranian opposition President Maryam Rajavi, head of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), called on Iranian youths to rush to the support of flood-hit areas.

“I call on all valiant youths of Lorestan, Ilam and other western provinces to launch a national solidarity effort to deal with the floods and aid the flood-stricken compatriots. Young people must take the initiative and rush to the aid of our flood-hit compatriots. The facilities usurped by the clerical regime must be placed at the disposal of the public. The ruling mullahs’ criminal cover-up, dissemination of misleading information and inaction have multiplied the scale of damages and human and material loss,” Madam Rajavi said.
