A flotilla carrying around 25 patients injured during the ‘Great March of Return’ rallies left port seeking to break Israel's decade-long sea blockade of the Gaza Strip on Tuesday. A group of boats departing from Gaza City’s port with the intention of reaching Limassol, Cyprus and defying the 11-year Israeli siege on the Palestinian enclave. It was reported that the flotilla had crossed the... Еще Israeli-imposed boundary of nine nautical miles (16km) by midday. They were immediately surrounded by four warships and towed back to Gaza. “The passengers on the boat today, which is a freedom boat, are going to convey their message to the free world that we want to live as freely as you, the people in the free world”, said human rights activist Ramadan Hayek. The protest also marked eight years since nine activists were killed by Israeli forces on board MV Mavi Marmara, one of six ships of the ‘Gaza Freedom Flotilla’.
