Although Iranians are increasingly concerned about threats of military action by the Trump administration, they say they are already struggling with daily life in an economic war, regardless of whether there is a war or not, the Washington Post reported.

Many Iranians consider themselves on the brink of war amidst a crippling economy due to US sanctions, which have contributed to inflation, lack of medicine and other vital commodities, without any feeling of easing the burden any time soon, the paper said.

The daily quoted Iranian citizens as saying that people’s lives are becoming more difficult every day, and despite the hope that some are, they do not know much about what can happen.

After a year of persistent difficulties, some have been stockpiling basic necessities such as canned food and cooking oil and are trying to buy the dollar and the euro as the Iranian riyal continues to fall, according to the Washington Post.
