Tehran, YJC. The City Council of Tehran has chosen to name one of the city’s thoroughfares after the deceased fire-fighter.

In its 550th open session, the City Council of Tehran decided to name one of the city’s roads after Omid Abbasi who heroically bought death to save a mother and two children last week.

In this session, Habib Kashani, member of the Planning and Budget Commission of the City Council, pointed to Abbasi’s funeral on Sunday and said "Sunday was a glorious day for society and for humanity, a society in which darkness grows and brightness fades away. In a society where murder, looting, and armed theft are seen, we could, thanks to the devoutness of this fireman, take pride in ourselves and in humanity.”

He then demanded that the Foundation of Martyrs and Veterans Affairs change its rules to include those like Omid Abbasi under their considerations.
