While the Libyan vessel carrying 3,000 tons of medical and food aid to the Gaza Strip was turned back by Israeli forces on Tuesday, others are prepared to land at the Gaza Port over the weekend.
On Friday a ship sailing from Qatar is scheduled to make landfall in Gaza. On Saturday, a ship sailing from Haifa, in northern Israel, will reach Gaza carrying five tons of humanitarian aid, including medicine, said Al-Khudari, who is the leader of the Popular Committee Against the Siege of Gaza.
Other boats challenging the Israeli siege will set sail from various points over the next few months:
"On 18 December the Islamic Parliamentary Union will dispatch a ship from Larnaca, Cyprus. Two days later, Jordanian activists will send a boat from the Red Sea port of Aqaba.
A Yemeni vessel will set sail in January."
Good luck to all these brave and honourable souls.
