GAZA, -- Three Israeli navy ships are encircling the French boat “Dignity” and blocking it from continuing its sail to the Gaza Strip on a humanitarian mission, press reports said on Tuesday.

Al-Jazeera TV channel correspondent Ayash Daraji, on board the boat, said that the Israeli navy was besieging the boat only 70 kilometers away from Gaza, claiming that it carried weapons, a matter which was categorically denied by the solidarity activists on board.

The Israeli officers are contacting the boat’s crewmembers and telling them they should go back from where they came from, yet Daraji said that all on board were determined to go ahead in the voyage to Gaza.

Organizers of the humanitarian mission said on Monday that the boat was approaching Gaza and would dock there within the coming 24 hours.
