Activists aboard the Libyan aid ship headed for Gaza plan to arrive at their destination Wednesday, AFP reported Monday.

The website of the charity funding the ship, headed by Saif al-Islam Gadaffi, son of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddaffi, stated that "the crew on board the ship maintains a positive mood."

Despite calls from Israel for the ship to dock at Ashdod or the Egyptian port of El-Arish, the aid ship is headed directly for Gaza.

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Sunday that "no ship of any kind will be allowed to arrive at Gaza."
