TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran’s Imam Khomeini Relief Committee distributed its financial aid among the affected people of Gaza who are suffering from Israel’s recent brutal attacks.
The Charity of Help for People of Palestine assisted the Imam Khomeini Relief Committee with the distribution of its financial aids among hundreds of the Palestinian families in Gaza.
A member of the Central Committee for Helping People of Gaza said that Iran’s help for the people of Gaza was part of the country’s support for the Palestinian nation’s resistance, and covered hundreds of Palestinian families residing in the Gaza Strip whose houses have been completely demolished during the recent Israeli raid.
“Imam Khomeini Relief Committee has dispatched its urgent financial aid within the framework of a relief and aid program to help the Gazans meet their needs,” Avaz Abou Daqeh said.
Last month, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Tel Aviv does not allow Iran’s medical help to reach the Palestinians.
“They (the Israelis) kill children, women and the elderly people and unfortunately do no allow us to help them,” President Rouhani said.
He noted that Iran is ready to send medicine and medical teams to Gaza to treat the wounded people, and said, “We are ready to accept the injured Palestinians in Iranian hospitals.”
Also last month, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in a telephone conversation with President of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) Peter Maurer called for all-out efforts to deliver humanitarian aid to war-stricken people in the Gaza Strip.
“Unfortunately due to the siege of Gaza, it is difficult to send humanitarian aid to this region while more international efforts are needed to send foodstuff and medicine to Gaza,” Zarif said during his phone conversation with Maurer.
The two sides underlined the need for coordination between ICRC and Iran to send urgent humanitarian aid to Gaza.
Over 2,000 Gazans, mostly women and children, have been killed and over 11,000 others were severely wounded in the Israeli forces’ war against the Strip since July 8.
On Wednesday night, the Israeli officials and Palestinian Resistance Movement Hamas agreed to extend ceasefire for five days ending on Monday midnight.
