Sources in Jerusalem advised Saturday afternoon that Israel had made the decision to allow the two boats containing a group of pro-Palestinians peace activists to dock in the Gaza Strip, according to Army Radio. Until this point Israel had refused to allow the entry to the Free Gaza activist group, warning against the mission and calling it an unacceptable provocation. Army Radio also reported that the activists had regained communications they had accused Israel of sabotaging. A total of 46 members of the US-based group were on the boats, hoping to reach the shores of Gaza with a delivery of humanitarian goods for Palestinians.
