The organization of Gush Shalom has called on the Israeli government to allow the aid convoy to reach Gaza.
"The State of Israel has no interest in footage of its navy violently assaulting against peace activists at sea flooding television screens all over the world. It is time to remove the suffocating siege and allow residents of Gaza to have free contact with the outside world, freely operate sea and air ports of their own like any country in the world," read a statement by Gush Shalom.
Among the passengers are lawmakers from a dozen European countries, a Holocaust survivor in her 80s, a Nobel Peace Prize laureate and a retired U.S. army colonel, Berlin said.
Israeli warplanes carry out multiple raids on the southern parts of the Gaza Strip, raising the prospects of more airstrikes as they hover over the coastal sliver. The Tuesday attacks targeted tunnels near a disused airport in the city of Rafah, a Press TV correspondent reported. No injuries have yet been reported.
Boats will meet in the Mediterranean, then turn toward Gaza to arrive at its beseiged slice of beachfront by the end of May. Free Gaza Movement’s MV Rachel Corrie is already on her way from Ireland and is presently off the coast of Portugal loaded with cement, paper and supplies for school children and medical equipment.

I must say I'm more than a little shocked to see Turkey taking a position on this!
Can someone explain to me the reasoning behind that?
