Iranian officials told state-run television on Tuesday that 1,000 people have been injured — at least 280 in the city of Zarand alone.
The magnitude 6.4 earthquake struck near Zarand in central Iran at 5:55 a.m. local time (0225 GMT).
Iran has been hit by a number of strong earthquakes over the past years, causing a lot of disasters and damage around the country.
God help the people of Iran who have gone through these disasters time and again and who have lost homes, loved ones, businesses and so much more.
Our hearts and minds are with them.
