Hamas is considering the option of having cargo going aboard the next flotilla trying to break the blockade on Gaza inspected by European inspectors at a Greek port, and having those inspectors accompany the ships on their way to ensure no arms are transferred on board on the way, Israel Radio reported Saturday.

The proposal is being negotiated by Jamal Khudari, an independent Palestinian legislator from the Gaza Strip with close ties to Hamas, known as the head of the “popular committee against the siege on Gaza.”

According to the report, Khudari had been in touch with Egyptian, Greek and other European officials, and the idea had now been brought to the Hamas government in Gaza.
