The Iranian parliament is interested in sending a humanitarian mission with aid to Gaza, Iranian National Security Committee chairman Ala Al-Din Boroujerdi said Tuesday according to the Fars news agency.

"The most important thing today is to break the Gaza blockade and send the residents there humanitarian aid,"  Boroujerdi said.

However not everyone approves of Teheran's move to aid Gaza, as one senior Hizbullah official underlined Tuesday.

"The Iranian Revolutionary Guard ships should not escort additional Gaza-bound flotilla," the official said following Iran's Red Crescent announcement.

"The results of such an action would be negative, since the purpose of sails is not military but to influence public opinion," the senior Hizbullah official said in an interview with the London-based al-Sharq al-Awsat daily.
