Organizers of the June flotilla to Gaza said they will officially announce on Thursday if the Mavi Marmara ship will take part in the flotilla, Israel Radio reported on Wednesday.

In recent days, reports have surfaced that activists from the Turkish organization IHH may cancel the participation of the Marmara in the upcoming flotilla.

Meanwhile, the head of the French delegation to the flotilla, Thomas Sommer-Houdeville, announced that a French boat will sail with the flotilla despite reports of the delegation canceling its participation under pressure by the Jewish community.

He said that the French ship will set sail with 30 to 40 activists.
