Ayatollah Khamenei donates funds for Myanmar refugees

SHAFAQNA-Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei on Tuesday donated funds for the Myanmar refugees.

According to his official website, following his Representative Hojatoleslam Abdolhossein Moezzi report on the catastrophic status of Myanmar Muslims, the Leader donated 10 billion rials ($1=33,000 rials) to help the refugees, IRNA reported.

The Iranian Red Crescent Society (IRCS) has already sent two consignments of medicine and foodstuff to Bangladesh border with Myanmar.

The Iranian officials have also voiced the IRCS readiness to dispatch more humanitarian aids for displaced Rohingya Muslims.

Some 800,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled to Bangladesh since the beginning of the violence of the Myanmar forces against the minority on August 25.

The Myanmar government has also been indifferent to the global warnings and requests by international organizations and world public opinion on stopping the violence against the minority community in the country.

Myanmar has so far refused to give access to UN fact-finding missions to investigate on accusations of torture, fire attacks and massacres against Rohingya Muslims in the Southeast Asian nation.
