Iran sends 3rd batch of humanitarian aid to Libya - official

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, July 4, IRNA -- Secretary General of the Iranian Red Crescent Society Zaher Rostami said Monday that IRCS has dispatched the third batch of humanitarian supplies to the Libyan refugees in Raas al-Jadir.

Raas al-Jadir is a border line between Libya and Tunisia.

Speaking to IRNA, Rostami said the shipment includes 40 tons of medication, tents, blankets and canned food.

He further said an eight-member rescue and medical team were also dispatched to that area to set up tents and provide medical services.

Indiscriminate bombing campaign of the NATO created humanitarian crisis in Libya.

The NATO carried over 15,000 sorties of bombing flights on Libya. Civilians fell victims to the bombing campaign.

Observers say that the NATO bombing campaign has nothing to do with the resolution of the United Nations Security Council which called for enforcing no-fly zone to protect the people from Libyan government's air strikes.

They say that the Libyan people are subject to the NATO air strikes and NATO has missed the agenda to enforce no-fly zone.

IRNA reporter said that there are 700,000 displaced Libyans are moving towards Raas al-Jadir due to the bombing campaign.
