MK Haneen Zoabi (Balad) on Wednesday said that news of a new flotilla on the way to Gaza proves that the "inhumane" blockade of the Gaza Strip is not legal despite the UN Palmer Commission's report stating that the siege was legitimate.

Zoabi expressed her support for the activists aboard the two-ship flotilla.

"Israel would be better off recognizing that as long as it continues this policy, the struggle will continue," Zoabi stated.
