First Ships Of Freedom Flotilla 2 Set Sail
The first of the Freedom Flotilla 2 ships have set sail for the rendezvous point in the Mediterranean Sea, where it will meet the rest of the ships participating in the flotilla, according to Haaretz. It is unclear when they will meet up with the other participating ships including the US, Canadian and the Greek/Norwegian/Swedish contingent given bureaucratic delays and suspected sabotage to the Greek ship.
The French and the Irish contingent of the Freedom Flotilla 2 have set sail for the meeting point in the Mediterranean Sea where they will await the arrival of the other flotilla participants before setting sail to Gaza in a repeat of last years attempt to break the Israeli siege on Gaza.
