以色列与活动人士可能出现第二次对峙 Second Showdown Looms Between Israel, Pro-Palestinian Activists

04 June, 2010

亲巴勒斯坦活动人士说,载有20吨救援物资的货船星期六将抵达加沙。这一举动可能会导致与以色列爆发另一场海事冲突。

“自由加沙运动”的组织者星期五发表声明说,“瑞秋科里”号目前在距离加沙大约240公里处的国际海域上,正在“向目的地行进”。他们说,货船装有建筑材料、纸张以及他们所称的其他以色列拒绝向“被囚禁的加沙人”提供的物品。

以色列总理内塔尼亚胡星期四对内阁说,船只不允许停靠加沙。以色列官员说,活动人士可以在以色列南部阿什杜德港卸货。

以色列星期一突袭了一艘货船,导致船上八名土耳其人和一名土耳其裔美国男子身亡。这些活动人士所在的这艘船是土耳其团体组织的救援船队一部分,他们试图冲破以色列对加沙地带三年的封锁。

Pro-Palestinian activists say a cargo ship loaded with 20 tons of aid is due to reach Gaza, Saturday -- a move that could set the stage for another maritime confrontation with Israel.

Organizers with the "Free Gaza Movement" released a statement, Friday, saying the Rachel Corrie is in international waters about 240 kilometers from Gaza and "on her way." They say the ship is loaded with construction material, paper and other supplies that Israel, as the organizers put it, refuses to allow for the "imprisoned people of Gaza."

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told his Cabinet on Thursday the ship would not be allowed to reach Gaza. Israeli officials say the activists can, instead, unload their goods at the southern Israeli port of Ashdod. 

On Monday, eight Turks and an American of Turkish origin died after Israeli commandos raided their ship. The activists were on a ship that was part of an aid convoy organized by a Turkish group trying to break Israel's three-year blockade of the Gaza Strip.
