Jordan to send aid to Gaza on daily basis
31/12/2008 17:20

Jordan will start a land bridge to deliver aid to Gaza Strip on daily basis, daily The Jordan Times reported today.
The daily delivery will include 10 trucks loaded with medical equipment and donations by the Jordanian people, the Jordan Hashemite Charity Organization (JHCO) spokesperson Mohammad Kilani was quoted as saying.
"No sooner had the door been opened for donations for the besieged Palestinians in Gaza than in-kind and cash donations poured in from citizens, public and private institutions and civil society institutions," Kilani said.
On Monday, Jordan sent to Gaza its first convoy of 16 trucks carrying medical and food packages in addition to some 1,000 blood units donated by Jordanians.
Israel last Saturday started launching massive air raids on the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip, killing 380 Palestinians and injuring 1, 700 others.
