The Iranian ambassador to Beirut and the Lebanese health minister have underlined the need for immediate aid delivery to the war-hit people in the Gaza Strip, Iran's press TV reported on August 1.

Iran's Envoy Mohammad Fathali and Lebanese Minister Wael Abu Faour called for aid delivery to Gaza during a meeting on July 31 to discuss Israel's attack to the Palestinian territory.

During the meeting, the Iranian envoy voiced the Islamic Republic's readiness to dispatch humanitarian aid to Gaza via Egypt.

Fathali also said that Tehran is ready to treat in Iran the Palestinians that have been injured in Israel's attacks.

Since July 7, Israel has attacked the Palestinian coastal territory with air and naval bombardments with the stated aim of halting Palestinian rocket fire.

More than 1500 Palestinians including women and children were killed so far during the operation dubbed 'Enduring Rock.' It is reported that the Israeli army lost over 60 servicemen during the hostilities.

Elsewhere in the meeting, the Lebanese minister welcomed cooperation with Iran on the issues of health and treatment and underlined the need for the further development of ties in this regard. He also expressed hope for a visit to Iran as soon as possible.
