In a statement on December 29, the Iranian Resistance had declared that despite the passing of three days from the rocket attack, Yahya Ziyarati was in critical condition and he was still in the special care unit (CCU).
The Iranian Resistance had called on the UN High Commissioner for Refugees and the European countries to immediately transfer him, along with two other badly wounded residents (Hassan Mohammadi and Khossrow Rezai) to Europe, emphasizing that the Iranian Resistance would assume all expenses for their transfer, accommodations and medical treatments.
