AMMAN, Dec. 22 (Xinhua) -- Jordan's activists announced Sunday that its aid boat trip to Gaza has been postponed until next month due to logistical hurdles, local daily The Jordan Times reported on Monday.
Activists had previously said a ship carrying nearly two tons of medicine destined for Gaza would set sail from the Red Sea port city of Aqaba on Dec. 25.
But the organizers could not find a suitable maritime company to carry out the voyage in time, forcing them to postpone the journey, according to Ali Abul Sukkar, a member of the expedition committee formed by the Islamic Action Front.
"We are determined to continue with the trip and are currently in talks with the company over fuelling and refueling logistics," Abul Sukkar said, adding that official procedures regarding government approval are in place.
It is reported that a boat carrying Qatari, Lebanese and Israeli activists and journalists will dock at Gaza on Monday in defiance of an Israeli-imposed naval blockade.
