The people of Pakistan appreciate and remember Iran 's help to Pakistan in the aftermath of the quake in 2005 and floods in 2010.
"After earthquakes in 2003 and 2012, the United States demonstrated its compassion and goodwill by offering assistance to the Iranian people and allowing private relief donations", the Senators wrote. Based on the latest statistics, at least 436 people have been killed and over 9,000 injured in quake-stricken areas in Iran.
Netanyahu said the offer was made via the International Committee of the Red Cross. "But our humanity is greater than their hatred".
"Israel opposes the evil Iranian regime but not the people of Iran".
He continued: "I've said many times that we have no quarrel with the people of Iran".
In the heartwarming video that has gone viral on the internet we can see the boy take his friend along while receiving aid from the Iranian authorities.
A landmark nuclear agreement signed with world powers in July 2015 saw crippling sanctions on the Iranian economy lifted in return for a pulling back of its nuclear programme.
Under the current sanctions regime, Iranian-Americans living in the USA are prohibited from delivering funds to their friends and family members. The majority of the global community does not recognize Israel's claim to the territory.
