JERUSALEM (Worthy News)– A Turkish aid group said on Monday it would send a new flotilla of ships to challenge Israel's naval blockade of Gaza, four years after the deadly storming of one of its vessel by Israeli commandos, the Times of Israel reported.
The Humanitarian Relief Foundation (IHH), which organized the first flotilla, said in a statement that activists from 12 countries had met in Istanbul and made the decision to send the ships "in the shadow of the latest Israeli aggression on Gaza."
"As most governments are complicit, the responsibility falls on civil society to challenge the Israeli blockade on Gaza," it said. — Source
