Israel fears aid convoys to Gaza by air

[ 03/07/2011 – 09:08 AM ]

NAZARETH, (PIC)– Israel has expressed fear of new movements by pro-Palestinians to challenge the Gaza siege by air.

Israeli media sources say talks are being held to cope with possible attempts by pro-Palestinians to land and protest at the Israeli Ben Gurion airport or land directly in the Gaza Strip.

The source said that Israeli authorities have received information indicating the new trend.

A political source has told Israeli Radio that protest organizers are planning on carrying out such a plan 7 June.

Separately, an Israeli writer said that Israel has lost the flotilla war after the Freedom Flotilla II succeeded in “isolating Israel on the international stage and driving it mad” without breaching the country’s siege on Gaza.

The flotilla set out to challenge Israel’s siege and deliver much needed aid to Gaza but has so far not been able to leave for Gaza because of Israeli diplomatic efforts.

The opinion piece was published by Israeli daily Yediot Aharanoth. It is titled: Best way to counter PR flotilla to Gaza Strip would have been to ignore it.
