Kabul, Feb 16, IRNA

Iran’s embassy in Kabul issued a statement on Saturday to declare that the Islamic Republic of Iran has dispatched humanitarian aid for Afghan people who suffer from freezing cold weather.

The statement read that the relief aid consisted of six load-full trucks of fuel, rice, blankets and tents which were sent to the victims of cold weather.

The relief aid was dispatched upon the request of Afghan government from international organizations.

Heavy snow and freezing cold weather in the past two months claimed lives of 900 people and 316,000 heads of tamed animals and even destroyed 1000 residential houses.
