Countries should ensure the safety of their participant citizens

The “Freedom Flotilla” coalition, after holding a meeting in Amsterdam, called the countries participating in the coming flotilla slated to be launched by mid of next May,to take tangible measures to ensure the security and safety of their citizens against potentials of any Israeli aggression, as it did with Freedom Flotilla I.

Ameen Abu Rashed , member of “The European Campaign to End the Siege on Gaza” ECESG , and member of the coalition said that all state government worldwide have denounced the Israeli attack on Freedom Flotilla that took place on 31st of last May in the international waters off Gaza coast, and resulted in the killing of nine Turkish activists.

Abu Rashed , in a press statement, pointed out that the United Nations Human Rights report has reaffirmed that the Israeli navy dealt with the passengers of the flotilla in a very savage way.

The report also added that there is clear evidence to support the criminal prosecution of the Israeli navy, according to article 147 of fourth Geneva convention, for the following crimes : willful killing, torture, or inhuman treatment , and willfully causing suffering, or serious injury to body or health”.

Humanitarian mission :

From his part, Benji Levy the spokesperson of the Holland vessel participating in the flotilla, said “ the humanitarian mission of the second Freedom Flotilla is a peaceful mission comes to respond to the silence of governments towards the suffering of the besieged Gaza Strip”.

Levy added, in a press statement, that “ any military or political attempt to hinder or intercept the Freedom Flotilla from reaching Gaza Strip will be considered as a violation to the international law , and our government should deal with it on this basis”.

It’s worth to mention that preparations are afoot in all institutions that are willing to participate in the flotilla to break the siege and reach Gaza Strip in ( Europe, North America, North Africa, Asia, South America, and Australia).

Levy concluded that 15 vessels are expected to participate in the next flotilla to be loaded by various relief material, and with more than one thousand passengers, including media people, politicians, charity workers, and activists of human rights issues.
