He also said three helicopters of the IRGC Ground Force and a chopper of the IRGC Nay are providing relief to the flood-hit areas of Sistan and Balouchestan.

On Monday, Iranian First Vice President Eshaq Jahangiri issued an instruction after he was briefed on the latest situation in the flood-hit region.

Jahangiri urged the governors of Sistan and Balouchestan and Kerman to do their best to provide essential elements including water and to repair the roads so that relief assistance could reach remote villages as well.

Sistan and Balouchestan has been affected in the most severe way due to record-breaking rainfall in years.
