    A 7.3 magnitude earthquake has hit the northern border between Iran/Iraq, killing over 340 people, and causing injuries to thousands more.

    70,000 people are reported to need shelter after the quake, according to one Iranian aid agency, and the main hospital ion Sarpol-e Zahab, Iran, has been severely damaged, leaving it struggling to treat those injured.

    It's Iran, why would anyone care lol? Maybe if they spent their money on healthcare instead of funding terrorist militias and nuclear weapons they'd have money to treat the injured for free.

    the government doesnt care about the people. and people should care instead of letting politics influence their feelings (like you, lmao) because the people dying are not responsible for the governments actions.


    do you really want to get into the topic of funding terrorism when saudi arabia is the biggest funders of terrorism (wahhabi inspired and saudi-funded), and that britain and america have ties with saudi?

    (im not denying that iran funds terrorist militias btw because they do- but not to the extent that everyone moans about-if anything, out of the 61 groups designated as terrorist organisations by the US, only 2 are shia and only 4 have claimed to have recieved support from iran, with the majority recieving support from saudi.)
