Israeli Occupation Forces have kidnapped 21 Human rights workers aboard the Free Gaza boat, ‘Spirit of Humanity.’ Amongst those kidnapped were Nobel laureate Mairead Maguire and former U.S. Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney. The ship was trying to deliver humanitarian aid to Gaza from Cyprus. The sailing of the Free Gaza Movement’s boat was the first since it aborted an attempt in January after the Israeli navy threatened to shoot the civilian passengers on board. Weeks ago the Israel navy had attempted to deliberately ram another of the Free Gaza movement’s boats, almost forcing it to sink.
