OSLO - Scandinavian activist groups are
launching an aid ship destined for Gaza on Tuesday, hoping to
challenge the Israeli blockade and draw international attention
to the conflict in a move reminiscent of the 2010 "Freedom
Flotilla", organizers said.
"We have the same goal as the previous flotillas, to put an
end to the blockade of Gaza
by challenging the Israeli navy
said Torstein Dahle
, the leader of the Norwegian section of the
activist group "Ship to Gaza
"This time around it will be an easy task for the Israelis
to stop us because we will be so few and strictly non-violent,"
Dahle told Reuters at Oslo harbour
