Women Hope to Break Gaza Sea Blockade Wednesday
Local Editor

A group of women will try to reach the Gaza Strip on board a boat on Wednesday in a bid to break a decade-long blockade by "Israel", a spokeswoman said.

Gaza has been under an "Israeli" blockade since 2006 but it was tightened in 2007.

The "Israeli" occupation regime says its maritime, land and sea blockade of Gaza is aimed at preventing Hamas resistance group from receiving supplies which could be used for military purposes.

Fifteen women will try to breach the blockade aboard the Zaytouna-Oliva boat early on Wednesday, said spokeswoman Claude Leotic.

"But we fear there will be an "Israeli" attack" to prevent the boat from reaching Gaza's shores, she told AFP Tuesday in a telephone interview.

"Israeli" media, quoting unnamed officials, reported in recent days that the navy will intercept the boat and escort it to the "Israeli" port of Ashdod to prevent it from reaching Gaza.

The Zaytouna-Oliva is one of two vessels that set sail from Barcelona in September.

"We think that through this act organized by women, we can give more visibility to the important role of Palestinian women in the fight for freedom," said Zohar Chamberlain, one of the organizers, just before two yachts left the Spanish Mediterranean city.

The flotilla dubbed "Women's Boat to Gaza", is part of the wider Freedom Flotilla Coalition that consists of pro-Palestinian boats that regularly go to Gaza from all over the world to try to break the blockade.

One such operation turned to tragedy in 2010 when "Israeli" commandos killed 10 Turkish activists in a raid on a flotilla. "Israel" last week paid Turkey $20 million in compensation for the deadly storming, which the Turkish government will distribute to the families of those killed.
