TEHRAN – The Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force (IRIAF) on Monday announced readiness to airlift another humanitarian consignment to Bangladesh for the displaced Rohingya people, ISNA reported.

In a statement, the IRIAF said its Boeing 747 will deliver another shipment containing food, medical and sanitary items to the Rohingya Muslims.

On Saturday, Iran sent a 40-ton humanitarian aid to Bangladesh, where tens of thousands of Rohingya Muslims are stranded after fleeing the ongoing violence and ethnic cleansing in Myanmar.
