Alien Planes Soar Over Iranian Aid Ship


The Iranian cargo ship en route to Yemen to deliver aid was being followed by alien warplanes.

Unidentified warplanes flew over Iran’s Nejat aid ship en route to the Gulf of Oman.

Despite that the rescue ship continued on its path.

The Iranian cargo ship is carrying some 1,500 tons of foodstuffs consisting of rice, wheat, canned fish, tents, blankets and pharmaceutical items for people in Yemen.

The Iranian Red Crescent Society (IRCS) has been trying to dispatch humanitarian aid to Yemen by sea and air, but has failed to do so due to Saudi Arabia's full blockade of the war-ravaged country.

Iran had earlier sent five consignments of humanitarian aid to Yemen, including a total of 69 tons of relief, medical aid, and consumer items, the agency reported.

Attacking Iranian aid ship will start war in the region: Top commander





Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Brigadier General Masoud Jazayeri

A senior Iranian commander has stressed that attacking the Iranian aid ship heading to Yemen will “ignite the flames of war” in the region.

Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Brigadier General Masoud Jazayeri made the remarks in an interview with Arabic-language news channel al-Alam on Tuesday.

Saudi Arabia, the United States, and their allies must keep in mind that if they want to block Iran's humanitarian aid to the regional countries, “they will start a fire which they cannot put out,” the commander added.


“I clearly announce that the self-restraint of the Islamic Republic of Iran has its limits,” Jazayeri stated.

Iran’s Nejat (Rescue) cargo ship, containing 2,500 tons of much-needed aid, including food, medical supplies and tents, left the southern Iranian port city of Bandar Abbas for Yemen on Monday.

On April 28, Saudi Arabia forced an Iranian cargo plane carrying medical aid and foodstuff for people in Yemen to return.

The Iranian aircraft, which had earlier received permits from Omani and Yemeni aviation officials to cross into Yemen’s airspace, could not land at the Sana’a International Airport, as Saudi warplanes were violently striking the runway of the airport.

The development came less than a week after Saudi warplanes intercepted another Iranian airplane, carrying humanitarian aid to Yemen, and prevented it from entering the Yemeni airspace on April 22.

Naval protection

On Tuesday, a senior Iranian commander said that Iran’s navy will protect the cargo ship on route to Yemen.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran’s 34th naval group, which is currently in the Gulf of Aden and Bab al-Mandab Strait, is responsible for supporting Iran’s humanitarian aid cargo ship,” IRNA quoted Admiral Hossein Azad as saying on Tuesday.

He added that the naval group includes the Alborz destroyer and the Bushehr logistic ship, which are both currently on a 90-day mission, “demonstrating Iran’s navel might, insure the security of international shipping lines and defend the country’s interests.”

Pentagon warning

Pentagon spokesman Colonel Steve Warren told reporters on Tuesday that the cargo ships’ escort is “absolutely unnecessary.”

Earlier in the day, a US defense official said that reports pertaining to the Iranian Navy escorting the aid ship are worrying.

The United States has information that the Iranian aid ship does not contain weapons, the official added.

The Pentagon has also said the ship should change course and head to Djibouti, where the UN is supervising humanitarian deliveries.


Saudi violates ceasefire

Earlier on Tuesday, Saudi Arabia violated a ceasefire in Yemen immediately after it was in place.

Four raids were carried out by Saudi jets in the southwestern Lahij province, the eastern Hajjah province, and the northwestern Sa’ada province.

Saudi Arabia started its military aggression against Yemen on March 26 -- without a UN mandate -- in a bid to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement, which currently controls Sana’a and other major provinces, and to restore power to Yemen’s fugitive former President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, who is a staunch ally of Riyadh.

According to the latest UN figures, the Saudi military campaign has so far claimed the lives of over 1,400 people and injured close to 6,000 people, roughly half of whom have been civilians.

Iran promises to protect aid ship bound for Yemen


TEHRAN, Iran - Iran's navy said Tuesday it will protect an aid ship traveling to Yemen where a five-day humanitarian cease-fire is set to begin between a Saudi-led coalition and Shiite rebels and their allies. The U.S. quickly warned against the move, which comes amid heightened tensions after the Islamic Republic seized a cargo ship in recent weeks.

The state-run IRNA news agency quoted Iranian Admiral Hossein Azad as saying that the 34th naval group "is present in the Gulf of Aden and Bab al-Mandab strait and has been given the specific mission of protecting the humanitarian aid ship." That naval group includes the frigate Alborz and logistic ship Bushehr, which are on a 90-day anti-piracy assignment in the region.

Iranian state television reported Tuesday that the ship, the Iran Shahed, carried food, medicine, tents and blankets, as well as reporters, rescue workers and peace activists. It said the ship is expected to arrive at Yemen's port city of Hodeida next week.

Iran threatens war if ‘aid ship’ to Yemen attacked


Iran threatened to declare war on any country that attacks a ship it says contains humanitarian aid currently making its way to Yemen, accompanied by warships. The warning came amid heightened tensions after the Islamic Republic seized a cargo ship last month.

Iranian Armed Forces Brigadier-General Massoud Jazzayeri warned that any attack on “the Iranian Red Crescent aid ship will spark war in the region. And this fire may not be put out or brought under control.”


“The US and Saudi Arabia should know that Iran’s self-restraint has a limit,” he told the Arabic-language TV Alalam, according to the semi-official Fars news agency.

The state-run IRNA news agency quoted Iranian Admiral Hossein Azad as saying that the 34th naval group “is present in the Gulf of Aden and Bab al-Mandab strait and has been given the specific mission of protecting the humanitarian aid ship.” That naval group includes the destroyer Alborz and logistic ship Bushehr, which are on a 90-day anti-piracy assignment in the region.

The aid ship left southern Iranian port city of Bandar Abbas on Monday and its destination is Yemen’s port city of Hudaydah on the Red Sea.

According to a statement allegedly released by aid workers, the ship carries 2,500 tons of medical supplies, flour, water and other aid, as well as relief workers, doctors, journalists and peace activists.

International humanitarian activists set to sail for Yemen on Iranian ship

A group of humanitarian aid workers, medical technicians, and peace activists from the US, France, and Germany along with journalists and physicians from Iran is setting sail for war-torn Yemen on Iranian “Rescue” ship.

“We are part of a humanitarian mission being carried out by the Red Crescent Society of the Islamic Republic of Iran. We are attempting to bring medical supplies, flour, and water to the people of Yemen,” read a joint statement released by members of Code Pink Women for Peace,International Action Center, United National AntiWar Committee, and US Veterans for Peace on Sunday.

A large number of physicians and a few journalists from Iran are with us on the ship and we intend to deliver “2,500 tons of medical supplies, foodstuff and tents” to the Hudaydah port on the Red Sea, the capital of the western Yemeni province of Al Hudaydah.

The ship, named Iran Shahed, is preparing to set sail for Yemen from the southern Iranian port city of Bandar Abbas, in Hormozgan province.

In an exclusive Press TV report, the ship’s captain, Vahid Soltaninejad, said that after leaving Bandar Abbas, they would travel through the Strait of Hormuz, the Gulf of Oman, the Arabian Sea, and into the Gulf of Aden, where they might dock, or travel on to the Hudaydah port.


“Everything on the ship has been carefully checked to make sure that nothing that could be considered a weapon is on board,” the activists' statement says.

Earlier in the month, Iranian planes tried to deliver medical aid and were cleared for landing by the Yemeni airports, but were repelled by Saudi fighter jets.

“Blocking the delivery of humanitarian aid is an extreme violation of international law. As our craft propels itself through the Persian Gulf, we are loudly urging no one to interfere with this peaceful humanitarian mission,” the statement read.

Saudi Arabia has unleashed a “horrific bombing campaign” in response to a vast uprising demanding democracy and self-determination in Yemen.

“As citizen of the western world, nothing disturbs us more than the fact that the cruise missiles and other weapons being used to terrorize and kill innocent Yemenis, are provided by the United States government,” the statement noted.

Even though our governments utilize “Human Rights” propaganda, they actually “isolate and demonize” certain countries.

“For more than half a century they have been coddling the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, one of the most blatant human rights violators on the planet,” it added.

The Saudi regime, apart from beheading, torturing, and exploiting its own citizens, “represses people throughout the region.”

Saudi Arabia has beheaded over 50 people so far this year. Last year, Saudi authorities executed 87 people, compared with 78 in 2013.
“The people of Yemen have long been held down by a corrupt un-democratic regime backed and supported by Saudi Arabia and the United States.”

The people of Yemen have “risen up in revolution” in response to years of humiliation, repression and impoverishment.

"The Ansarullah organization, commonly called the “Houthis” in US media, is at the center of a broad coalition of forces that is writing a new constitution. Popular Committees have sprung up all across the country."

Along with ISIL Takfiri militants and al-Qaeda, Saudi Arabia is “waging a campaign of violent terrorism” against Yemen.

The US government backs the Saudi regime and its allies in their “abhorrent and immoral” war against Yemen.

“We call for all parties involved to lay down their weapons and enter the process of peaceful negotiations, and continue with the democratic national dialogue that’s taken place over the last three years,” it concluded.

The statement was clinched with three wishes for the people of Yemen, “Let the Hungry Children of Yemen Live!”, “This Illegal, Immoral Blockade Must End!” and “Don’t Block the Rescue Boat!”

On April 28, Saudi Arabia forced an Iranian cargo plane carrying medical aid and foodstuff for people in Yemen to return. The Iranian aircraft, which had earlier received permits from Omani and Yemeni aviation officials to cross into Yemen’s airspace, could not land at the Sana’a International Airport, as Saudi warplanes were violently striking the runway of the airport.
