Israeli missile frigate to intercept the Freedom flotilla
Israeli military sources confirmed that an Israeli missile frigate will be deployed opposite the shore of Gaza on statuary evening in order to intercept the freedom flotilla that is heading to break the siege on Gaza.
Israeli Military sources estimated that the ships will arrive at Gaza’s shores late Saturday night or early Sunday morning, and the Navy intends on sending ships to intercept the flotilla overnight, although the arrival news was not confirmed by the flotilla organizers.
News coming from the flotilla organizers confirm that the people participating in the eight-vessel sail were “being very good sports about all the delays. They are waiting for the last ship to arrive and they’re in a good mood, they added.
The organizers delayed their sailing towards Gaza once again, confirming that the final decision on starting the action would be taken later in the day.
The postponement is related to the organizers endeavors to persuade the Cyprus authorities to allow a group of about 25 prominent activists including many European Parliament members to join the flotilla through the Turkish Part of the island.
AP confirmed that the ships number in the flotilla has been diminished to five instead of eight because of the Cyprus authorities’ refusal to give access to flotilla.
