Tehran, YJC. Iran has rejected as untrue allegations about sending arms to Yemen.

The Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham rejected as false accusations of Iran sending weapons to Yemen, maintaining taht the charges are entirely fabricated and false.

Such claims will by no means justify recent attacks on Yemen,” Afkham asserted.

She added taht based on a civil aviation deal signed between Yemen and Tehran, Iran has sent aids and medicine to the war-stricken region using its civil flights.

The diplomat also called on the international community, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) particularly, to help the war-torn Middle East.

Pointing to the extent of damage and casualties cased by recent air strikes on Yemen, the FM spokeswoman called on international bodies to help prevent further foreign attacks on the innocent people of Yemen.

Afkham further stated that Iran's Red Crescent Society is ready to help the injured Yemenis.

Iran's Red Crescent Society has sent a planeload of humanitarian aid and medicine to Yemen.

The thirteen-tonne relief package of humanitarian aid from Iran is intended as help to those recently been targeted by Saudi-led airstrikes on Yemen.
