Palestinians Launch ‘Freedom Ship 3’ to Break Gaza Siege

The Freedom Ship 3 yesterday departed from Gaza port in an attempt to break the siege imposed on the Gaza Strip, the National Movement to Break the Siege announced.

The group called to immediately release the captains who were arrested by the Israeli naval forces in international waters as they tried to break the blockade imposed on Gaza.

Abu Salmiya condemned the Israeli naval assault on the activists onboard the Freedom ship saying,

Two ships which had sailed from Europe to break the illegal siege on Gaza were captured by Israel last week.
