Activists aboard the Canadian Tahrir boat tweeted on Friday that they are "now 70 miles from shores of Gaza."

"We are delighted to hear Palestinians in fishing boats are getting ready to welcome us," they added.

Activists set sail from Turkey on Wednesday aboard the Tahrir and Saoirse yachts carrying medical supplies. The Israeli military had said it would not permit them to breach its blockade.
