IHH organizers were considering postponing a planned flotilla, set to sail to the Gaza Strip this month, as a result of regional developments, particularly in Syria, Turkish newspaper Hurriyet reported on Tuesday.

“We are reconsidering our plans," flotilla spokesman and IHH board member Huseyin Oruc told Hurriyet. "The international community is talking about an intervention in Syria, a development that would affect Turkey very much, as well as Palestine and peace in the region. All the factors are inter-linked and we must be looking at all of them."
