Blockade-running activists tour Gaza Strip, vow to bring 10 students on return voyage

Dozens of human rights activists from 17 countries toured the Gaza Strip on Sunday after their two fishing boats were allowed in despite an Israeli naval blockade of the Hamas-ruled territory.

The group also said it plans to bring 10 Palestinian students to Cyprus on the return voyage in another bid to highlight Israel's strict restriction of movement into and out of the impoverished territory of 1.5 million people.

The group plans to spend 10 days in Gaza visiting schools, hospitals and refugee camps before sailing back to Cyprus with 10 Palestinian students who have been accepted to study abroad but were prevented from leaving Gaza.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The heart, courage, and moral commitment of these 17 volunteers who beat all odds to deliver humanitarian aid to Gaza, is immense, and should be celebrated by everyone who believes in the peaceful exercise of freedom in the face of tyranny.
