We received a message from the Finnish foreign department (the Estelle is sailing under a Finnish flag), that their Israeli counterpart informed them that the Estelle will be boarded on international water, and its passengers brought to the Israeli port of Ashdod.

“If the Israelis carry out their threat this would be another act of piracy and kidnapping to enforce the illegal and inhuman blockade of Gaza”, said Irene MacInnes of the Canadian Boat to Gaza.  “The world should not remain silent anymore”, she added.

The Estelle is currently in international waters approx. 120 NM (Nautical Miles) from the shores of Gaza.  Jim Manly, retired Canadian MP is on board.
