In sympathy condolence with Beirut; Islamic Republic of Iran Basketball Federation sends the following message:

Iran Basketball Federation; Tehran: “The heartbreaking news of yesterday’s explosion in Beirut made all of our hearts dismayed and brought us so much pain.

It is a relief to know our friends in FIBA Asia are safe and sound, though the pain wouldn’t alleviate as we see numerous people killed, suffered or lost their homes and livelihood. We want you to know that we share your sorrows and grief in these difficult hours.
