Iran to send ship carrying humanitarian aid to Gaza


TEHRAN – The Iranian Red Crescent Society (IRCS) said on Monday that it will soon send a ship carrying humanitarian aid to Gaza via Egypt. 

Pir Hossein Kulivand, the head of the IRCS, said the ship will carry aid provided by the Iranian people to Egypt and then will be delivered Gaza via Egypt. 

“So far, a lot of aid from the people has been delivered to the Red Crescent Society,” Kulivand said, according to Fars News.

The Iranian official also criticized the pace at with aid is getting into Gaza. He said aid is being delivered to Gaza very slowly and in a very limited amount. 

“So far, perhaps no more than 90 aid trucks from the people have been delivered to Gaza,” Kulivand said. 

The IRCS has launched an aid collection campaign since the start of the Israeli aggression against Gaza. The Iranian people have donated a considerable amount of money in humanitarian aid to the IRCS to be ultimately delivered to the besieged Gaza Strip.
