Iran’s first consignment of humanitarian aid for the Rohingya Muslims, who are fleeing violence at home in Myanmar, was sent to Bangladesh on Friday.
The consignment was loaded onto a cargo plane by Iran’s Red Crescent Society and headed to Bangladesh on Friday morning, Iranian media reported.
Weighing around 40 tons, it included foodstuff and medical supplies.
Earlier, Head of the Relief and Rescue Organization of the IRCS (Iran’s Red Crescent Society) Morteza Salimi said the Islamic Republic would send more humanitarian aid for the persecuted people of the South Asian country in the near future.
He added that Iran was also prepared to set up field hospitals for Rohingya Muslims in Bangladesh.
