ISTANBUL, Sheikh Raed, Salah, head of the Islamic movement in the 1948-occupied Palestinians lands, on Thursday said that all the ships anchored in the port of Anatolia in Turkey were ready to sail to the besieged Gaza Strip without waiting for an Israeli permission to do so.

In an interview with the London-based Al-Quds Al-Arabi newspaper, Salah pointed out that all obstacles were overcome, and the ships were ready to sail towards the Island of Cyprus where they wound join with other ships coming from Greece before sailing as a convoy to break the siege on the 1.5 million Palestinians besieged by Israel and its allies in the Gaza Strip.

He made it clear that all participants in the convoy were determined to reach the coastal Strip and to unload the humanitarian assistance they are carrying in the Gaza harbor.

Around 800 Arab and foreign supporters, including lawmakers, journalists, and syndicate leaders from more than 50 countries across the world were participating in the biggest sea convoy so far with the aim to break the Israeli cordon on Gaza.

The Israeli occupation authorities vowed not allow the convoy to reach the Strip and threatened to arrest all members of the trip. However, the Israeli threats appeared unable to dissuade the activists from embarking on this journey.

"Our position is clear, we want to enter Gaza through the international territorial waters of the Strip, and this is our right and we need not to ask permission from the Israeli occupation to do so", Salah underlined.

He warned that if the Israeli navy intercepted and blocked the convoy, the free people of the world should altogether stand up against the Israeli piracy that would be added to the long list of the Israeli black records in human rights violations.
