Aid Vessel Heads to Yemen

A second ship carrying humanitarian aid for the Yemeni people set sail for the war-torn Arab country, which has been the target of Saudi-led airstrikes for over two months.
The cargo vessel, named the Arezou (Wish), started its journey from Imam Khomeini Port in the southwestern province of Khuzestan on Saturday, Press TV reported.
Sadollah Abdollahi, director of the Ports and Maritime Organization of Khuzestan, said the ship was loaded with 8,000 tons of rice and 1,000 tons of sugar.
In May, another cargo ship, the Nejat (Rescue), containing a consignment of 2,500 tons of relief aid, including food, medical supplies and tents, docked at a port in Djibouti for its consignment to be dispatched to Yemen. The aid was to be delivered to the Yemenis by the United Nations, which has established a delivery hub in the African country.
