European Campaign: Funds Ready for First Three Ships of Freedom Fleet 2

European Campaign: Funds Ready for First Three Ships of Freedom Fleet 2

(Dp-News sana )

The European Campaign to End Siege on Gaza (ECESG) announced that it now has the funding of the first three ships of a new fleet which will go to the Gaza Strip.

The new convoy will be named Freedom Fleet-2 after the name of the first fleet, which came under piracy and a bloody massacre by Israel against the activists on board.

Dr. Arafat Madi, the Brussels-based Campaign Leader, one of the founders of the Freedom Fleet coalition, said in a statement there have been extensive calls for launching a new fleet to the Gaza Strip involving many ships with more aid and more activists than Freedom Flotilla-1, which was carrying ten thousand tons of aid and hundreds of activists from more than forty countries around the world.



Madi added that following the massacre committed by the Israeli forces against the activists on board the Freedom Flotilla in the regional and international waters, Arab, Islamic, European and Western calls have increased to form a fleet larger than Freedom-1, in clear defiance by the free people of the world who rose up to condemn the horrible massacre.

He confirmed that the Freedom Fleet-2 is expected to start sailing in the coming weeks, adding that it would be larger in quantity and quality than Freedom-1, and would be formed by the will of the free world to break the Israeli unjust siege on Gaza.

Dr. Madi didn’t rule out a semi-official participation in the new flotilla sailing to the Gaza Strip, especially from the Turkish side after Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has declared that he will continue to provide aid to the Gaza Strip at all costs.

Earlier, the Campaign called for exerting pressure on Israel to immediately release the badly needed humanitarian aid to reach people in the besieged Gaza.

The ECESG said that the Israeli occupation forces asked the coalition for a list of the aid the Flotilla was carrying to Gaza for allegedly sorting them out in an attempt to mislead the world although Israel had already taken over the vessels and the aid.

Israel intends to prevent about 90 % of the Freedom Flotilla aid from reaching the Gaza Strip, the Campaign added.

Freedom Flotilla 1 comprised six ships carrying 750 supporters including 44 European and Arab official, parliamentary and political figures. It also carries on board ten thousand tons of humanitarian aids including medical aid, construction materials, woods, 500 electric wheelchairs for the handicapped, 100 ready-made houses and tents to help dozens of thousands of Palestinian people who have lost their homes in the Israeli aggression on Gaza.

The occupation authorities still detain the flotilla's ships and the aid that were on board, in addition to scores of activists and supporters to the Palestinian people.
