Following the Incident in Shiraz, the Injured Were Hospitalized in Saadi Hospital

It was reported today that the cause of the tragic incident in Shiraz was that some people in Shiraz had been incited to prevent the reconstruction of a ruined building. The law enforcement officers who guard the security of the city intervened to prevent the adverse events. As a result, there was a collision between those who stormed the house and the police, resulting in several bodily injuries.

The injured were divided into two groups―those who needed outpatient treatment and those who needed to be hospitalized. About eight people were admitted to Saadi Hospital, and with the establishment of martial law in Shiraz, peace and order was restored immediately, and this peace still continues.

Yesterday, Radio Shiraz broadcast the news of the martial law several times. Today, the informed officials said that the clash between the attackers and the police forces took place near Hazrati Street, and around the Shamshirgarha Alley.
