Euro campaign asks for international protection for Freedom Flotilla 2 22May11 May 23, 2011

The Palestinian Information Centre -  22 May 2011

The European campaign to lift the siege on Gaza has called for world protection for the humanitarian aid fleet that is expected to set sail to the Strip by end of June.

The campaign said in a press release that the Israeli threats against the fleet were in violation of the international law and doctrines.

It pointed out that Israeli navy boats fired at a Malaysian ship at international waters last week while en route to Gaza carrying relief material, warning that the same scenario could be pursued against the Freedom Flotilla 2.

It recalled that the Israeli attack on the first freedom flotilla in May last year killed nine activists and wounded tens others.

The campaign affirmed that European solidarity vessels would sail next month from Italy and France toward Gaza, which has been under Israeli siege for the past five years.
