Turkey says no citizens as Israel “to prevent” Gaza aid ships

Israel was aware two yachts had set sail carrying Irish, Canadian and U.S. activists, official said.


Turkish Foreign Ministry spokesman Selcuk Unal said on Wednesday that there were no Turkish citizens on board of two ships which departed from Turkey for Israel-besieged Gaza.

When AA correspondent asked whether a two-ship aid flotilla departed from Turkey for besieged Gaza, Unal said that two ships departed from Fethiye (town of Turkey’s southwestern Mugla province) today, and both ships declared their destination as Rhodes.

There are no Turkish citizens on board of the ships each carrying 12 passengers, said Unal, adding that captains of the ships were Greek.

Earlier in the day, Palestinian Maan news agency stated that two ships, which were carrying medicine as well as 27 activists from five countries, departed from Fethiye and they were expected to reach Gaza on Friday.

“Israel army to prevent aid ships”

Fawzi Barhum, a spokesman of Hamas, told AA that they heard about the ships but they did not have any further information.

Meanwhile, the Israeli military spokesman’s office said the navy was prepared to prevent the vessels and had “completed the necessary preparations in order to prevent them from reaching the Gaza Strip.”

Lieutenant-Colonel Avital Leibovich, speaking to reporters by telephone, would not say how the boats might be stopped, but said Israel was aware two yachts had set sail.

Israel was aware two yachts had set sail carrying Irish, Canadian and U.S. activists, Leibovich said.

In May, 2010, Israel had attacked a Gaza-bound aid flotilla and killed nine Turkish citizens on board.

Martyred By Israeli Occupation Attacks

انّا للہ و انّا الیه راجعون

May Allah Subhana wa Ta’ ala grant the Shuhada Jannatul Firdaus, and ease it for their families, loved ones and anyone around them. Allahumma Ameen ya Rabbil Alameen. ‘ Inna Lillahi wa ‘ Inna ‘ Ilayhi Raji’un, Allahu Akbar


* The list of shuhada does not display, the numerous victims of the zionist occupation which are undocumented by media. Nor it displays the victims of the “silent onslaught” due to restrictions of movement, ability to go to hospitals for treatment or life saving surgery, due to lack of medication because of the blockades and so on. For example: The Slow Motion Genocide by the Siege on Gaza only, killed 600 patients since Gaza got under Israeli Siege.

Neither does this list, display the avoidable mortality. A clear and statistical factual evidence, about the number of deaths due to indecent ruling by occupation forces. For even an occupier has obligations under International Laws, Geneva Convention and the Hague regulations, which it is neglecting. These circumstances, together with deliberate policies of the occupier to neglect and even deny every basic human right, severes avoidable mortality which is totally silenced by media or reporting organisations. While in the Holocaust, 1 on 6 Jewish people directly died of deliberate neglect, so if we believe the facts over 1 million due to avoidable mortality, neither should these same circumstances be ignores which are ongoing in Palestine. For this report displays a avoidable morality of at least 0,5 million Palestinians.

How many more dead corpses of Palestinians does the international community need to see in order to act? How many more cruelties and violations of Human Rights, Regulations and International Law will be needed to intervene so this ongoing warcrime is being stopped once and for all.
