Noor72GAZA (PNIC):-Israeli navy forces attacked on Tuesday Freedom Ship 2, arrested  eight passengers on board and transferred them to a military base in Ashdod Port.

The Legal and International Relations Committee of the Great March of Return and Breaking the Siege condemned, in a statement on Tuesday, the Israeli piracy on the ship which sailed for breaking the siege that has been imposed on Gaza for 12 years.

Earlier on Tuesday, the National Action for Breaking the Siege announced losing contact with the ship that kicked off in the morning from Gaza port carrying students, wounded and patients who were hoping to reach hospitals outside Gaza.

Human rights activists said, in a conference held before the ship headed for European ports, that they will not give up their hopes and efforts to break the siege.

They held Israel responsible for the safety of the passengers and asked international community for protection.
