Iranians protest shortage of water in southwest of Iran

According to Mikrofonnews Agency (MHA), hundreds of Iranians staged a demonstration in Khuramsheher in the southwest of Iran over a shortage of clean water.

Demonstrations urged all Iranians to support their move against a water crisis in the country on Friday night.

Iran is facing a rising water crisis in the last several years and environmentalists warn the situation may get worse in the upcoming years.

Long-running droughts in the country and miss-management of the water resources by the government of Iran are blamed for the crisis.
