The Turkish passenger ferry which departed Istanbul with humanitarian aid for the people of Gaza has docked in Antalya to wait for other partner ships.
The vessel is part of the Gaza Freedom Flotilla convoy which will carry humanitarian aid from 50 different countries.
Nine ships from Turkey, Ireland, Britain, Sweden, Algeria, Bahrain and Greece will take 10,000 tons of construction material, medical equipment and school supplies, as well as around 750 activists to Gaza.
The Lebanese army on Wednesday opened anti-aircraft fire at Israeli warplanes overflying Shebaa, the National News Agency reported. It said the Israeli fighter jets came under the anti-aircraft fire at 11:30 am after violating Lebanese airspace.
The warplanes later headed southwards, NNA added.

Gaza bombed last night and Lebanese army shooting Israeli planes same morning --- All Israeli citizens in bunkers at very same moment when this was occured... Really this is true prewar situation now.
Thanks from link. See you all later - have to catch with some works now.
We were due to depart from Antalya on the flagship of the flotilla on Tuesday, May 25, but as with all other carefully crafted plans, we are having to revise our schedule. The boats setting sail from Greece have been delayed and as we all need to travel in a group we need to extend our patience for a further 24 hours before setting sail. Irrespective of when we get under way, one thing that has transpired between each and every one of us who intends to join the Flotilla is that our will-power is ready to match Israel's military might.
Government tells IDF: Don't let convoy of aid ships reach coast of Gaza (Haaretz)
Israeli threats and technical glitches have forced a delay in the Freedom Flotilla, a multinational relief mission heading for the Gaza Strip.
The flotilla, which is currently off the coast of Cyprus, consists of nine vessels from Turkey, Ireland, Britain, and Greece.
The approximately 750 activists of the Freedom Flotilla, who intend to break the siege of Gaza, are carrying around 10,000 tons of construction material, medical equipment, and school supplies.
Israeli officials have said the relief effort will be blocked.
