IRGC Sets Up Field Hospitals in Iran’s Flood-Hit Province

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Ground Force has set up mobile field hospitals in Iran’s southeastern province of Sistan and Balouchestan, where flooding has displaced many families.

The IRGC has been providing emergency flood relief assistance to the residents of Sistan and Balouchestan after heavy rainfalls inundated many rural areas.

The IRGC has set up a 64-bed field hospital with mobile containers in Dashtyari, located in southern parts of the large province.

The IRGC forces have also dispatched ambulance buses to the flood-stricken regions to help local residents who are in dire need of medical services.

The IRGC Ground Force has deployed engineering units and special machinery to the areas affected by floods to reopen roads and help people.

In remarks on March 5, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei said the flooding of Sistan and Balouchestan has inflicted extensive losses on the people there.

“Relief groups, including both those run by government officials and others, are working hard and providing aid and assistance. This must continue and others who are willing, capable, and eager to help in this cause should also get involved and help this aid work,” the Leader stated.

The IRGC Ground Force has carried out extensive plans in recent years for development of border provinces and underprivileged areas, such as the southeastern province of Sistan and Balouchestan.

IRGC forces have also been actively involved in rescue and relief operations in natural disasters across Iran. They were tasked with the reconstruction of rural areas in the western province of Kermanshah after a November 2017 earthquake.
