Official: Iran Ready to Dispatch More Aids to Libya, Bahrain

"The food supplies and medical teams of Iran's Red Crescent Society are ready to be sent to Libya and Bahrain and will be dispatched once agreed by the officials of the two crisis-hit countries," Director-General of Iran's Red Crescent Society for International Affairs Shahabodin Mohammadi Araqi told FNA on Sunday.

He added that the society has been in talks with Egyptian officials to dispatch its aid cargos to Libya.

Libya and Egypt share lengthy borders in North Africa.

He said that the society has already sent a medical team as well as other humanitarian and medical aids to the border regions between Libya and Tunisia to provide medical aid and treatment for thousands of stranded Libyan refugees.

As regards Iran's humanitarian aids to Bahrain, Araqi stated that the society as a neutral body has voiced its readiness to send medical aids and food supplies to the Bahraini people away from political agendas.

The Iranian Red Crescent Society dispatched its first aid cargo comprising food and medication along with a medical team to Libya in March.

Iran also plans to set up two field hospitals near the displaced persons camp, run by Iranian medical staff committed to staying and helping the refugees as long as necessary.

More than 500000 people are estimated to have fled Libya since mid-February and a further one million have been displaced.

The US and its Western allies have carried out a bombing campaign against Libya since the Security Council ratified a no-fly zone over the African nation.

Libya says many civilians have been killed in the airstrikes.
