A new aid ship, Julia, is expected to head to the Gaza Strip from Lebanon, although Lebanese minister of transportation Ghazi Aridi has denied it permission to sail to Gaza because it has not presented a request to the ministry to sail, reported the daily An Nahar on Sunday.

The ship had docked in the northern city of Tripoli's port two months ago as it was carrying a shipment of glass for a local merchant, however, most of the cargo was broken and the merchant refused to accept it, and a legal battle ensued resulting with those responsible for the ship being fined.

The owners never paid the $110,000 fine, and it was later revealed that the party behind the Lebanese aid ship Mariam actually paid it.

The same party then requested from Julia's owners that it joins the aid ship campaign to Gaza.
Aridi said: "So far, we have not received an official request specifying the ship's destination." He stressed that the law states that a ship must specify its destination, number of crew, and cargo in order to be granted permission to sail.
