Ship to Gaza

A Libyan-chartered ship carrying aid for Palestinians set a new course for Egypt on Wednesday after Israel’s navy warned it away from the blockaded Gaza Strip, an Israeli official said.

The Moldovan-flagged Amalthea was heading to Egypt’s El Arish port.

Israel had vowed to turn away or seize the Amalthea — renamed ‘Hope’ by activists — rather than let it reach Gaza.
