Iranian aid flotilla postponed – Israel News, Ynetnews

The Iranian Red Crescent organization has decided to postpone the departure of its aid vessel to the Gaza Strip, a senior organization official said Monday.

Mohammad Javad Jafarian said that a new date for the ship’s departure had yet to be set. ” The reason for the delay is a change made by the international Red Cross in the type of cargo and lack of international coordination.”It is unclear whether Israel’s decision to ease the siege on Gaza had anything to do with the Iranian flotilla’s delay. Iranians have drawn lessons from the Navy raid on the Turkish-owned Marmara ship and have made it clear that the Iranian flotilla has no military characteristics.

The first Iranian ship, organized by a non-governmental organization called “the Iranian company for the protection of the Palestinian nation” has already set sail. It is unclear whether it will wait for the second vessel or continue towards the Suez Canal.
