As three of the eight ships in the 'Freedom Flotilla' headed for Gaza left Istanbul, the head of the United Nation's Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) in the Gaza Strip, John Ging, voiced support for the action.

“We recommend the world send ships to the shores of Gaza, and we believe that Israel would not stop these vessels because the sea is open," Ging said.

"Many human rights organizations have been successful in previous similar steps, and proved that breaking the siege on Gaza is possible," he continued.
