SHAFAQNA – According to AFP reported that “A senior Iranian commander warned the United States that a “fire might start” over an aid ship bound for Yemen on Wednesday after the Pentagon urged it to change course.”The report added ” Brigadier General Masoud Jazayeri said it was Iran’s right to deliver relief supplies to Yemen as a humanitarian ceasefire takes hold and rejected Washington’s request that aid be taken instead to a United Nations hub to allay worries the cargo might be military. “I should say frankly that Iran’s restraint has a limit,” Jazayeri, a deputy chief of staff, told Iran’s Arab-language Al-Alam television late on Tuesday.”

On other report said by AFP “An Iranian ship purportedly carrying aid to Yemen should change course and head to Djibouti where the United Nations is overseeing humanitarian deliveries, US officials demanded Tuesday. The US military is tracking the ship after Tehran reportedly said it would send warships to escort the vessel to Yemen, Pentagon spokesman Colonel Steven Warren told reporters. The ship, the Iran Shahed, had moved through the Strait of Hormuz and was now in the Gulf of Oman, according to the marinetraffic.com site. But the vessel was not under any naval escort at the moment, Warren said.”
