The consignment will be delivered to the Red Crescent societies of Jordan and Iraq, as well as Lebanon's Red Cross society, to be handed out to the Syrian refugees in those three countries, Mohammad Shahabeddin Mohammadi Araqi, an official with the Iranian Red Crescent Society said.
He also added that the consignment of the humanitarian aid consists of tents, blankets and dialysis machines, among other goods.
Araqi then noted that such humanitarian assistance is being provided following a request from the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) for emergency aid for the Syrian refugees.
