According to the statement that Iranian Red Crescent had stopped most of the search-rescue after the distribution of tents and food aid and released, "Turkish charity IHH will continue its works in the area according to its report. In case Iranians need further help, there is a supply emergency squad team waiting on hold."

IHH states that in both earthquakes, half of the 600 villages in the region were damaged and 12 villages were demolished.
