Ships forcing their way into the Gaza Strip are not helpful to the residents as existing land crossings are more than capable of meeting their needs, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs reported in a press release on Tuesday.

"International aid organizations and the private sector of Gaza ensure that all the necessary food, medicine and clothing are provided to the Strip via Israel," the statement read.

"If the flotilla organizers were truly interesting in providing humanitarian aid - as opposed to engaging in publicity stunts - they would use the proper channels to ensure delivery of any supplies," the communique charged.
