Freedom Flotilla II aid convoy would reach Gaza Strip by end of May

Muhammad Kaya, head of IHH's branch office in the Gaza Strip, has affirmed that the second Freedom Flotilla aid convoy would reach Gaza Strip by end of May on the first anniversary of the first Freedom Flotilla massacre.

He said during a meeting in Gaza with Palestinian minister of transport and communications Osama Al-Aisawi that the fleet would come from various European countries.

The discussion tackled joint cooperation in the fields of transport and communications.

Kaya said that the IHH sponsors around 9,000 orphans in Gaza in addition to supporting professional training centers in the Strip and would soon open a hospital in Beit Hanun.

IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation is an Islamic Turkish NGO active in more than 100 countries. Established in 1992 and officially registered in Istanbul in 1995, İHH provides humanitarian relief in areas of war, earthquake, hunger, and conflict.

The İHH holds Special Consultative Status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council since 2004. Current president of the İHH is Fehmi Blent Yıldırım.

The İHH came to international attention in the aftermath of the Gaza flotilla raid of 31 May 2010. The İHH was owner and operator of three flotilla ships involved in the incident, including the MV Mavi Marmara, which served as the flagship of the convoy Freedom Flotilla I.

Nine Turkish passengers, many of them members or volunteers for the İHH, aboard the Mavi Marmara were killed by Israeli forces in a raid that began when Israeli commandos boarded the vessel during its attempt to breach the blockade of Gaza last May .
