The Sarpol-Zahab town in Kermanshah province of Iran is the most stricken area by the Iran-Iraq earthquake that hit the border region between Iran and Iraq.

Most houses in the town were razed down by the 7.3 magnitude earthquake vehicles were seen distorted, buried in rubbles.

For fear of aftershocks, local residents have to live in tents. Some came to their toppled houses to search for goods that can still be used.

Many Iranians are voluntarily transporting relief goods including food, blankets and tents for the affected areas.

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani visited the quake-stricken areas in Kermanshah province, pledging to allocate sizeable fund for the reconstruction of the buildings.
