The Derna Relief Committee said in a statement that its campaign for the city is facing difficulties in its job but will go on with the campaign against all odds until the relief and aids convoy arrives in the city.

It added that the National Company for Sea Transport refused to transport the donations as it had no ships for sailing the goods to Derna as the entire fleet it had is for shipping oil and fuel.

It also said that it contacted foreign shipping firms, but they demanded air cover and international protection for shipping the aids to Derna.
