The Jordan Engineers Association (JEA) has announced to establish an "international commission" to help rebuild Gaza, local daily The Jordan Times reported on Monday.

"Many organizations across the world want to help, but the commission will accept donations on the condition aid is channeled through civil society organizations, not dubious governmental bodies," JEA President Wael Saqqa was quoted as saying.

Activists from Indonesia, Malaysia and Turkey have already expressed their willingness to participate in the commission and offer donations for Gaza via Jordan, Saqqa added.

The JEA decision came following a trip of its delegation to Gaza late last month to assess the situation in the war-battered enclave and find ways to assist reconstruction.

Israel carried out a three-week unprecedented military offensive on Gaza, during which about 1,400 Palestinians were killed and 5,500 others wounded.
