Enligt uppgifter i The Times of Israel, som citerar den israeliska radion (som i sin tur citerar militärkällor) bordades Zaytouna-Oliven omkring 35 sjömil utanför Gazas kust av den israeliska marinen. Bordningen av båten och gripandet av de ombordvarande 13 kvinnliga aktivisterna lär enligt dessa källor ha skett utan våldsamheter. För att ”minimera friktion” vid bordningen ska kvinnliga soldater ha gått i fronten. Zaytouna uppges nu vara på väg till den israeliska hamnstaden Ashdod.

At 1558 (CEST) on 5 October, we lost contact again with the Zaytouna-Oliva and presume that the Israeli Occupation Navy has now begun to attack it and that it has been surrounded in International Waters (latest position: Lat+31.906033 Lon+33.757630). On board are 13 women, including Mairead Maguire, the Nobel peace laureate from Northern Ireland, Fauziah Hasan, a doctor from Malaysia, and retired US army colonel Ann Wright. Take action to protect them!

As you surely know, at this very moment there is a boat en route to Gaza, that little Palestinian enclave. Its mission is to observe, break and eventually end the inhumane, illegal and for all involved parties destructive blockade of Gaza. Women's Boat to Gaza, as we call our action, is an initiative by Ship to Gaza and the Freedom Flotilla Coalition.

There are an estimated 4,000 fishermen in Gaza. Only 5-700 of them fish regularly. The reason for that is either that they fear being detained by Israeli occupation forces, whose ships patrol the six-nautical-mile zone from the shores within which Palestinian boats are allowed. Or, the other reason is that they are unable to make a living from what they catch in that zone, which is depleted of fish.
