Gaza aid ship to dock in Egypt after Israel pressure
A ship with supplies for Gaza will dock at el-Arish in Egypt, officials say, after Israeli pressure to stop the vessel breaking its Gaza
The Moldovan-flagged ship chartered by a charity run by the son of Libyan leader Col Muammar Gaddafi, left a Greek port on Saturday.
Israel asked for help from the UN, and had talks with Greece and Moldova. But organisers insist they will go to Gaza.
An Israeli raid on a Gaza-bound ship in May killed nine Turkish activists.
Gaza aid ship to dock in Egypt
A ship carrying aid for Palestinians in Gaza will dock at el-Arish in Egypt, following Israeli pressure to stop the vessel breaking its blockade
of the territory.
Upon leaving the Greek port of Lavrio it was unclear if the Moldovan-flagged boat, with twelve crew and up to ten activists on board, would try to
reach Gaza in defiance of the Israeli blockade or would go to the Egyptian port.
I am surprised they have done this but many more ships are planned, it is only a matter of time before they break the siege
