The Islamic Revolution Housing Foundation’s assessment shows at least 1,000 residential properties of the quake-stricken city of Sisakht in southwestern Iran have become uninhabitable and need to be reconstructed, Alireza Tabesh, the head of the foundation, said.
A 5.6-magnitude earthquake struck Sisakht in Kohgilouyeh-Boyerahmad Province on Wednesday night, leaving at least 63 injured, causing power blackouts and flattening buildings, Mehr News Agency reported. 
“Of these units, 580 were located in the rural areas of the province and the rest were in the city of Sisakht, located on the foothills of Zagros Mountains, 34 km from Yasuj, in the northern part of the province,” he said.
