Freedom Flotilla ships sail together for Gaza on Thursday

Freedom Flotilla ships sail together for Gaza on Thursday

BRUSSELS, The European campaign to end the siege said that because of necessary hold-ups, the ships of the Freedom Flotilla coalition are expected to start sailing together for the besieged Gaza Strip on Thursday.

In a press release on Tuesday, the European campaign added that if everything goes well without the movement of the ships being hindered by Israel, they will reach Gaza on Saturday.

It explained that the Greek-Swedish cargo ship sailed in the early hours of Tuesday morning to Cyprus after a delay of several hours due to technical constraints, while the other European ships will catch up later today.

The organizers of the Turkish, Algerian and Kuwaiti ships docking at Antalya said they will move on Wednesday (tomorrow) after all other ships gather in Cyprus.
