Libyan boat heading for Gaza
LIBYA: A Libyan aid ship stayed on course for the besieged Gaza Strip
Sunday despite Israeli warnings that it will be intercepted at sea, said
an organiser on board the boat.
"We are heading for Gaza. We will not change direction," Mashallah
Zwei, a representative of the Kadhafi Foundation, a Libyan charity, told
AFP by satellite phone.
Zwei insisted the foundation was not seeking "a confrontation or a
provocation," when asked about the risks of a repeat of an Israeli naval
raid on an aid flotilla on May 31 that killed nine Turks.
"For the time being our only thought is delivering the aid to Gaza,"
he said. "We are supported by the international community, who, we hope,
will help us reach our goal."
