Free Palestine Movement plans to send plane to Gaza

By staff
The Jerusalem Post

The California-based Free Palestine Movement has announced plans to send an airplane filled with humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip, Channel 2 reported on Sunday. According to the organizations Web site, activists plan to challenge the Israeli blockade of Gaza by air.

The group reportedly plans to break the blockade by entering Gazas air space without flying over Israeli or Egyptian territory. Success, the Web site said, depends on showing that the effort poses no military threat.

Channel 2 identified the aid as consisting of communication equipment.

The Free Palestine Movement took part in the flotilla that attempted to reach the Gaza Strip on May 31, ending with the deaths of nine Turkish activists aboard the Mavi Marmara.
