According to London based Arabic daily al-Sharq al-Awast, the Revolutionary Guard formed an emergency committee on logistics in Damascus,
A senior figure in the Iranian foreign ministry also said his country was preparing to provide aid for areas destroyed in Lebanon, despite claims by Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah and other sources, according to which Hizbullah is not receiving money from Iran for recovery efforts in Lebanon.
Abandonment of aid to Iran itself
A spokesman for the foreign ministry in Tehran, Hamid Rada Asafi, said Sunday that "the government is learning the need for aid and ways to transfer it to Lebanon."
Within Iran popular opposition to the support of the Tehran regime of Hizbullah seems to be growing, alongside the abominable abandonment of aid to Iran itself.
Residents are especially furious in the district of Khuzestan, where thousands are awaiting aid in cities destroyed in the Iran-Iraq war, and where villagers are awaiting for the reconstruction of their village, as well as around the city destroyed in an earthquake. On Saturday, protests were held in protest of the lack of help from the Iranian government.
Despite the protests, sources in the bureau of spiritual leader Ali Khamenei said he ordered to government to send immediate financial aid to Hizbullah. The first part of the aid, standing at USD 150 million, has already been transferred to an aid organization set up by Hizbullah under Iranian and Syrian monitoring.
