While the Iranian regime spends billions of dollars on war in Syria and Yemen and on missile tests and terrorist activities, it allocates a little budget for the country’s infrastructures, schools and universities.
Such accidents including the deaths of 10 university student, including four young women, in December in Tehran are the result of shortage of funds. Such budget cuts cost the lives of Iranian students at universities and schools and on the roads.
