Hundreds of people in Jordan on Friday took to streets in capital of Amman to protest Israel's blockade to the Gaza Strip.

Participants, organized by the Islamic Action Front, marched from Al Hussein Mosque to Amman Great Municipality yard, called for supporting Gazans to remove the blockade that forced them in difficulties.

Hamam Sa'id, a leader of the march, urged concerned parties to act immediately and effectively to put an end to the Israeli siege.

Meanwhile, a similar march took place in northern city of Irbid, where participants called on the Arab and Islamic governments to take immediate action to lift the siege and dispatch assistance to Gazans.

The Gaza Strip ruled by Hamas has been under tight Israeli blockade for a month since violence between Gaza-based Palestinian militant groups and Israel flared up on Nov. 4.

On Thursday, Israel decided to allow the delivery of 70 truckloads of food and basic supplies into the impoverished strip and limited quantity of fuel for the territory's sole power plant.

It is only the fourth time that Israel opened its crossings with Gaza since the violence flared up one month ago.
