Palestinian official: Lebanon to send aid ship to Gaza

Lebanon decided to send a ship laden of aid to Gaza Strip to help reliving people in the territory where Israel has been imposing a tight blockade, a Palestinian activist said on Saturday.

Jamal al-Khodary, a lawmaker heading a popular committee against the siege, said Lebanese officials told him the ship will be carrying medical supplies for the Palestinians. He did not disclose the date of the voyage.

European activists succeeded to break Gaza blockade by ferrying four missions between August and December. However, earlier this month, Israel prevented a Libyan ship, carrying 3,000 tons of aid, from entering Gaza territorial waters.

The last boat, chartered by the U.S.-based Free Gaza Movement, left Gaza fishing port on Friday, carrying 11 university students who failed to leave the territory through its borders with Israel and Egypt.

Israel and Egypt sealed off their borders with Gaza in June 2007 after Islamic Hamas movement seized control of security installations in Gaza Strip, routing forces loyal to moderate president Mahmoud Abbas.
