Khuzestan people notice crocodile tears of terrorist groups: Official

Tehran, IRNA – Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, a special aide to Parliament Speaker Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf, said on Wednesday that the people of southwestern Iranian province of Khuzestan notice the crocodile tears of terrorist groups.

Amir-Abdollahian made the remarks as some terrorist anti-revolutionary groups are trying to fan the flames of some protests against the recent shortage of water across the province.

Writing on his personal Twitter account, Amir-Abdollahian said that the people and nomads of Khuzestan are a stronghold for the Islamic Republic of Iran and a beloved part of the country.  

“We all strive for a prosperous Khuzestanabad and a developed Iran,” he said.

It is less than a month that the western regions of Khuzestan have been in a water crisis, and due to the lack of water in the Hur al-Azim wetland, some local people have lost their livestock.

One factor behind Iran’s water shortages is a sharp drop in rainfall, which has been more than 40% below last year’s levels in recent months, combined with high Summer temperatures. The drought has left Iran’s dams with less water to generate electricity, contributing to blackouts in recent weeks.
