Iranian Aid Convoys Ready to Leave for Christians in Iraq's North (Aleteia, 12/29/14)

Iranian aid convoys are awaiting an entry permit from the government in Baghdad to distribute humanitarian aid among suffering Christian communities in the north of the country.

This was reported to Iranian news agencies by the Christian parliamentarian Yonatan Betkolia, representative of the Assyrian and Chaldean communities.

Betkolia added that Iran has already sent humanitarian aid to religious minorities brutalized by the militia of the Islamic State group. Now convoys with food, tents, clothing, and medical and health care for Christians who have taken refuge in Erbil and other areas of Iraqi Kurdistan are ready to leave. Iranian officials operating in the area, said Betkolia, have already contacted local Christian communities to coordinate the distribution of aid.
