International Freedom Fleet Intends to Sail to Break Gaza Siege

ISTANBUL (Dispatches) – The International Freedom Flotilla Alliance has announced plans to provide humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip by sea, in light of the ongoing Zionist aggression and the dire humanitarian situation in the region.
The alliance held a press conference at the headquarters of the Turkish Humanitarian Relief Foundation (IHH) in Istanbul, where it confirmed that it would set sail to Gaza to end the illegal and deadly Israeli blockade on the Strip.
The fleet aims to deliver thousands of tons of emergency humanitarian aid directly to the Palestinian people in Gaza.
The International Freedom Fleet Alliance includes various international civil society organizations and activists, including the IHH.
During the press conference, Bulent Yildirim, the chairman of the IHH, spoke about the Zionist regime’s continued blockade and increasing violence and massacres in Gaza. The Freedom Fleet’s goal is to lift the blockade on Gaza.
Several vessels have tried to break the siege on the Gaza Strip as part of the Freedom Flotilla, however Zionist occupation forces confronted them and prevented them from reaching Gaza’s shores.
In 2010, Israel brutally raided the Mavi Marmara ship bound for Gaza and left a dozen activists killed. The attack occurred on a flotilla that comprised six civilian ships and sent the Ankara-Tel Aviv ties into a tailspin.
The siege has led to an economic and humanitarian crisis, with the United Nations warning that the overall conditions in the enclave could make it “uninhabitable”.
