One of the organizers of the Lebanese aid flotilla which is scheduled to sail for Gaza responded on Saturday to Defense Minister Ehud Barak's comments that Israel will prevent the ships from reaching the territory stating that, "we don't recognize him [Barak], and we're not waiting for his permission to set forth on our journey," Channel 10 reported.

Samer al-Haj added that the ships are currently docked in a Lebanese port and the documents which will allow them to sail have been prepared for their departure.
