Israel and Hamas at war | Freedom Flotilla returns without being able to help Gazans

The Quebec delegation of the Gaza Freedom Flotilla returned to Montreal after a 12-day stay in Istanbul. As was highly predictable – given the failure of similar missions before – the 5,500 tonnes of medical equipment and food could not be delivered.

Nevertheless, in a press release, Nimâ Machouf, epidemiologist and Jean Pierre Roy Valdebenito, nurse and peace activist, say they are returning “more determined than ever with concrete requests to make to the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Canada, Mélanie Joly “.

An official request for a meeting was made, and remains unanswered to this day. “Canada must demonstrate leadership in a role of peace and humanitarian aid. The postponement of the departure of the flotilla shows us that citizens cannot carry this on alone,” said Jean Pierre Roy Valdebenito.

Nimâ Machouf notes that Israel has taken steps to prevent the departure of the ships.

“The flotilla did not abort. She was sabotaged when she was ready to leave. It is postponed until later. Israel is showing the world how far it is prepared to go to deny Palestinians access to essential needs,” Nimâ Machouf is indignant.
