Iran’s Red Crescent Society canceled the planned shipment of humanitarian aid to Gaza, Ynet reported June 24. The organization’s secretary-general, Hussein Sheikh al-Islam, said at a press conference that the ship, which was supposed to depart June 27, would not be sent due to “the Zionist regime’s violence and inhuman response to humanitarian aid.” The aid will instead be sent by other means and not in Iran’s name, al-Islam added.
