Abstract: Let $ R$ be a Noetherian ring, $ \mathfrak{a}$ be an ideal of $ R$ and $ M$ be a finitely generated $ R$-module. The aim of this paper is to show that if $ t$ is the least integer such that neither $ H^t_{\mathfrak{a}}(M)$ nor $ {supp}(H^t_{\mathfrak{a}}(M))$ is non-finite, then $ H^t_{\mathfrak{a}}(M)$ has finitely many associated primes. This combines the main results of Brodmann and Faghani and independently of Khashyarmanesh and Salarian.
