A six-ship flotilla carrying 500 protesters is planned in the largest yet naval protest against the Israeli naval blockade on the Hamas controlled Gaza Strip, Channel 10 reported Tuesday.

The ships plan to sail from Cyprus at the end of May, in an effort to reach the shores of Gaza.

Prominent participants aboard include parliament members from Turkey and Greece. 

The Israeli Navy is reportedly prepared to meet the flotilla, and will not let it through, using force if necessary.
