"The Relief and Rescue Force assisted 846 flood victims," ​​ISNA quoted Mohammad Hassan Kusian as saying.

Rescue operations have now been completed in five provinces, but are continuing in Qazvin and Zanjan, he said.

Iran has received rains over the past two years, which was unprecedented in the past 50 years, but last year, unfortunately, the country faced a drought that saw a 40 percent drop in rainfall.

Watershed management is a solution to strengthen the ecosystem in the face of subsequent droughts by infiltrating rainfall into the land.

Extremes in rainfall over the past three years have gradually cast doubt on the concept that Iran is experiencing a prolonged drought, and some experts have announced that wet weather will sweep the country.

Thus, some experts argued that Iran entered a period of wet weather after dry periods over the past several decades, while others categorically rejected this claim, arguing that the country has faced a lack of rainfall of 50 mm over the past 5 decades.
