Iran’s Red Crescent said it would send two aid ships to Gaza.
The organization announced Monday that it would send two ships to Gaza by the end of the week, one carrying humanitarian supplies and the other carrying Iranian relief workers, according to reports.
Iranian Red Crescent Director Abdolraoof Adibzadeh told the Iranian English language Press TV that the aid would be transported into Gaza through the Rafah border with Egypt.
Egypt opened up its border crossing last week to allow people to cross freely in and out of Gaza, but so far has not allowed any goods to pass into Gaza.
The Red Crescent sent an aid ship loaded with food and medicine to Gaza in December 2008, which was intercepted by Israel’s Navy
On Sunday, Iran’s Revolutionary Guards reportedly said it was willing to escort aid flotillas to Gaza

You mention that the aid ship was intercepted – but why don’t you tell the whole stro – that the aid goods were transferred to gaza after inspection that it does not contain war or war supporting materials?
