Radical Shi'ite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr will send a truck full of medicine and food to Lebanese families affected by Israel's two-week military operations, his aide said Wednesday. The supplies were prchased in Syria and will be sent from there, said Jalil al-Nouri. Al-Sadr's office feared that the truck might be attacked if sent from Baghdad through Iraq's tense western province of Anbar, he said. "The truck is ready to move to Lebanon," he said without saying when it will head there.
