Iranian parliamentarian Mahmoud Ahmadi Beighash announced Saturday that he and other Iranian lawmakers intend to join a ship headed for Gaza by way of Lebanon.

"A ship is going from Lebanon to Gaza in the course of the current week and the lawmakers will go to Gaza via this ship," Beighash said in comments to semi-official news agency ISNA cited by Reuters.

The decision to head from Lebanon to Gaza and not Egypt was reached in a meeting with speaker of parliament Ali Larijani according to Beighash.
