GAZA, (PIC)-- The Israeli embassy in Athens threatened Tuesday the group of activists participating in the anti-siege sea trip that the Israeli navy would use armed force if they approached the Gaza shores.


The warning was issued in an open letter by the Israeli foreign ministry and published by the Israeli embassy in the Greek capital Athens.


The letter called on the activists to surrender the humanitarian aid cargo they brought with them to assist Gaza people or else they would be accused of supporting the Hamas authority in the Strip.


For his part, MP Jamal Al-Khudari, the head of the popular committee against the siege, stated, following a telephone call conducted with him by the anti-siege activists, that despite the Israeli threats, the boats will leave Cyprus for Gaza on Thursday evening or Friday morning loaded with medical assistance for Gaza children.


MP Khudari noted that during the next two days, the trip organizers will be working on processing all legal documents before taking the rest of activists along with media crews on board.


On the Palestinian side, Khudari said that 20 large boats will leave Gaza shores to receive the anti-siege boats coming from Cyprus in the presence of 200 media workers in addition to members of the popular committee against the siege and other Palestinian activists.


The lawmaker pointed out that a tent was pitched on the Gaza beach to provide temporary information services for all journalists and concerned parties.
