Speaking to the Islamic Republic News Agency of Iran, Mahmoud Wazi, head of the presidential office, said that the delegation’s task is to check the situation on the ground and find a solution to problems with local authorities immediately.
According to the German news agency (dpa), political slogans against the regime of the Islamic Republic of Iran were launched during the riots in Hestan. There were also alleged clashes between protesters and security forces, and several of them were arrested. This information has not been confirmed by an official source.

Water shortages and power outages have occurred across Iran in recent weeks, but the situation is particularly bad in Hestan Province, where mercury threads in the thermometer also showed 50 degrees Celsius.
