The organizers of the Libyan ship carrying aid for Gaza said Tuesday evening that the ship is still on course for the Strip, despite reports from the ship and from Egyptian officials that the ship planned to dock at the Egyptian port of el-Arish.

The Ghadaffi International Charity and Development Foundation, the organization behind the aid ship, said they "had not received any decision to change the course of the ship.

"We received an ultimatum from Israel to leave the area tonight. We will not do so."
