Iranian Red Crescent Society once again voiced its readiness to send humanitarian aid, relief workers and medicine to Yemen.
“An Iranian relief flight has been allowed to transfer Yemen’s wounded civilians for treatment and we also voiced our preparedness to send relief workers and humanitarian aid to that country,” Head of Iranian Red Crescent Society Amir Mohsen Ziayee said on Sunday.
He underlined that the present of Iran’s Red Crescent in other countries should be in accordance with International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, and said, “Accordingly we have sent our relief aids to Yemen’s Red Crescent Society.”
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen since March 2015 to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 11,800 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi bombers are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
According to several reports, the Saudi-led air campaign against Yemen has driven the impoverished country towards humanitarian disaster.
