SANANDAJ, Aug. 4 (IRCS) _ The President of Iranian Red Crescent Society (IRCS) met the family of Koohsar Fatehi, a Red Crescent rescuer who was killed 2 weeks ago by unidentified armed persons.

Prof. Ali Asghar Peyvandi visited Kurdistan Red Crescent provincial branch in western Iran on Saturday.

IRCS President paid a visit to the road relief base of Morvarid Mountain Pass in Kamyaran City where Koohsar Fatehi, 41, served as an Iranian Red Crescent rescuer for years, and met with his colleagues.
