Marine Intifada Against Israel Continues


According to a report filed by KUNA, the Kuwait News Agency, the Free Gaza Movement and the Turkish Relief Foundation (IHH) are working in tandem with Turkish, foreign and European associations in Istanbul to revive the “marine uprising” to challenge the embargo on Hamas-controlled Gaza by Israel.

Some 20 vessels including Turkish, Malaysian and European ships will head for Gaza as the self-proclaimed human rights activists have done in the past, carrying “humanitarian aid”; cement, medical supplies, school stationary, electrical transformers and children’s food supplements”, hoping to arrive at the end of April or beginning of May, depending on weather conditions and other logistical factors.

To maximize the pressure on Israel, in addition to the self-proclaimed activists, the ships will also be carrying a number of political, media and parliamentary figures from a number of countries.
