LONDON (Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - Pro-Palestinian British organizations announced the formation of a coalition to participate in the second aid convoy, Freedom Flotilla, to the besieged Gaza Strip next May.
The coalition is composed of the British-Palestinian solidarity campaign, Friends of the Aqsa, the British Muslim initiative, Stop the War coalition and the Palestinian Forum in addition to other British organizations.
Spokesman for the Palestinian Forum Zaher Beirawi said that this coalition would hire a big cruise ship for the travel of the participants who would be part of a 15-ship aid convoy to Gaza.
Commenting on the possibility of seeing another Israeli attack on the convoy as the previous one, spokesman Beirawi stated that Israel does not respect international law and commits serious violations against the Palestinians day and night, so it is likely to repeat its crime.
The First Freedom Flotilla convoy was violently attacked last year by the Israeli navy in international waters, which led to the killing of nine Turkish passengers.
