Iran’s humanitarian aid arrives in Yemen

Iran’s humanitarian aid arrives in Yemen

The deputy director of the Iranian Red Crescent Society (IRCS) for international and humanitarian affairs announced on Monday that a cargo of medical aid from the Islamic Republic for the war-hit people of Yemen has arrived in the Arabian Peninsula country.

Mohammad-Shahabeddin Mohammadi Araqi said the humanitarian cargo has been delivered to the Yemeni side in Hudaydah port, Tasnim News Agency reported.

Following the move, the office of the International Committee of the Red Cross in Yemen, in a letter, expressed its gratitude to the IRCS for sending the medical cargo, he said.

The IRCS official further emphasized that the Yemeni Interior Ministry and the country’s Red Crescent Society have also thanked the Islamic Republic for the 107-ton cargo of medical supplies.

In May, Iran dispatched 2,500 tons of food and medical supplies for Yemenis via Djibouti, where the United Nations oversees humanitarian deliveries.

Yemen's defenseless people have been under massive attacks by a coalition led by the Saudi regime since March.

Thousands of Yemenis have been killed in the attacks.
