Radio Farda:

A convoy of 50 vehicles has carried Iraqi Al-Nojaba and Hashd al-Sha'bi militias into Iran's flood-hit western provinces, reported IRGC-linked Tasnim News agency on Sunday April 14.

Meanwhile the IRGC commander in Ilam province says a large convoy of Iraqi militia have arrived in the province. The commander, Jamal Shakarami, has characterized the Iraqi militia as an ally of the Islamic Republic.

Iranians on social media have been complaining why a country that has two armies, namely the IRGC and the conventional army, needs help from foreign militias for flood relief efforts.

According to Shakarami, a convoy of Al-Nojaba forces have arrived in Dehloran in Khuzestan Province.
