Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has ordered Iranian state-run bodies and nongovernmental organizations to provide more aid to people affected by severe flooding in several cities and villages in southern and southeastern Iran.

RNA - "Torrential rain in Sistan and Baluchestan Province and some other places in southeast of the country that has led to flooding, which has caused problems for people, and in some cases caused destruction and damage, requires that in addition to the praiseworthy services that have been so far rendered, state-run bodies and nongovernmental organizations should do more to help the dear people of that region and prevent further losses," Ayatollah Khamenei stated in a message on Monday.

Over the past two days, severe rainfall and flooding have blocked roads, destroyed houses and displaced hundreds of people in the southeastern provinces of Kerman, Sistan and Baluchestan as well as Hormozgan in the south.

Unprecedented floods are ravaging #Iran's Sistan & Baluchistan province, with significant human & material costs.
Even as search and rescue ops continue, focus will be on restoring livelihoods.
Our thoughts and prayers are with our affected compatriots.#سیل_سیستان_و_بلوچستان pic.twitter.com/pBaLT7BQIm
