24 activists to sail for Gaza next month


Head of Miles of Smiles aid convoys Isam Yousef has expected that around 24 female activists are likely to be aboard the boats, “Amal and Zaytouna,” slated to set sail for the besieged Gaza Strip next month.

In press remarks on Sunday, Yousef called for necessarily initiating popular events in support of the women’s boats to Gaza under the slogan “Break the siege with your hands.”

He also called for supporting these renewed efforts to break the siege financially, spiritually and politically. The Gaza-bound boats will leave Barcelona in Spain on September 14, with an all-woman crews on board in order to challenge and break the illegal and inhuman Israeli blockade.

On September 12, 13 and 14, there will be various events in the Port of Barcelona related to the departure of the boats to Gaza.
