GAZA, -- The Israeli government has proposed to the Freedom Flotilla to deliver its aid shipment to Gaza Strip via land route, Rami Abdo, member of the European committee to end the siege on Gaza and one of the organizers of the sea convoy, said on Tuesday.

Abdo told the PIC that the offer was absolutely rejected by the organizers and participants.

He meanwhile revealed that two German MPs joined the participants along with two Swedish MPs bringing the total number of official and parliamentary figures to more than 50 and the overall participants to 750 persons from 60 nationalities.

For his part, Fawzi Barhoum, a Hamas spokesman, said in a statement to El-Bayan website on Tuesday that the Israeli threats to the Freedom Flotilla reflected the "Zionist arrogance".

He called for international protection for the fleet along with popular support until it breaks the siege and reaches Gaza.

Barhoum called on the participants not to heed those threats, which should pose as an incentive for achieving their goals.
