GAZA, Israeli marines on Tuesday boarded and took control of the Gaza-bound aid ship "Irene", operated by Jewish human rights activists, forcing it to dock at the port of Ashdod, according to Palestinian sources.

The ship is carrying symbolic aid for Gaza composed of toys, books, fishing equipment, and medicines.

The popular committee against the siege held Israel fully responsible for the lives of the activists and called on the international community to intervene to protect the ship and the passengers aboard and secure their safe arrival to Gaza.

The aid ship voyage was organized and financed by a coalition of Jewish peace organizations from nine European countries called: "European Jews for a Just Peace".

There are ten Jewish peace activists and two journalists on board the aid ship.
