U.S. Warns Americans Against Traveling To Gaza
The U.S. State Department warned its citizens against going to the Gaza Strip, and against what it called “infiltrating” into Gaza by participating in solidarity ships or by any other means. The statement was welcomed by Israel.
The statement did not criticise Israel’s attack on the Freedom Flotilla in May nor the deaths, arrests, injuries, and deportations of activists, including Americans, but requested that those who supported solidarity ships to discourage what it called “further attempts to break the siege on Gaza.”
