A small boat with foreign and Gazan passengers sailed from Gaza Wednesday purporting to be "accompanying Palestinian fisherman to ensure the navy does not attack or abuse them." The vessel, named Oliva, belongs to the ISM organization.

One of the members of ISM on the ship told Israeli media that passengers intended to record any potential IDF "attacks" on fisherman in the Mediterranean, as well as any "human rights violations."
