The Al-Karama, a ship belonging to the Free Gaza Movement’s flotilla initiative, sought to breach the maritime security blockade on the Gaza Strip. Previously, it had declared to authorities that it was headed for Egypt’s Alexandria port.

As Al-Karama approached Gaza, Israel Navy officials contacted the ship via radio, warning its captain of the blockade and offering to transfer any of the ship’s goods to Gaza by established land crossings. Following the ship’s refusal, IDF Navy soldiers peacefully boarded the Al-Karama ship without incident and offered its passengers food and water, as seen in the photos.

In addition, the passengers’ health was verified by Israeli doctors.
