Jordanian aid convoy awaiting permission to enter Gaza

By Petra - Jan 05,2014 - Last updated at Jan 05,2014

AMMAN — Wael Saqqa, head of the Jordanian “Artery of Life” committee, on Sunday said the international convoy that was scheduled to leave for Gaza at the beginning of this month was waiting for the approval of Egyptian authorities to enter the strip.

Although the Egyptian authorities earlier approved the entry of the convoy, which includes a delegation from the Jordanian “Artery of Life” committee, besides international groups, the approval was later suspended, he said.

Talks are now under way with Egyptian authorities to allow the entry of the convoy, Saqqa noted.
