The celebrations that took place on the last Wednesday night of the current Iranian year are known in Persian as “Jaharshanbeh Suri,” according to local media reports.

Media outlets reported that "nearly 23 deaths were recorded throughout Iran, and 2,114 injuries were recorded."

She added, "Among the injured, 1,616 were referred to hospitals, including 413 seriously injured, including 152 people who were subjected to amputation and 700 who suffered eye damage."
