Tehran: The Iranian Red Crescent has decided to send two aid ships to Gaza this week and has called for volunteers to act as relief workers and accompany the vessels, the state IRNA news agency reported.
Iranian Red Crescent director Abdolrauf Adibzadeh told IRNA late on Sunday that the decision to send the ships was taken after a meeting with the Foreign Ministry.
"One ship will carry donations made by the people and the other will carry relief workers. The ships will be sent to Gaza by end of this week," Adibzadeh said.
