This boat set out from Cyprus on Monday, loaded with 4 tonnes of medical supplies to help the people of the Gaza strip. Yesterday, this boat was rammed by the Israeli Navy and had to dock in Lebanon. Luckily no-one on board was injured, but the supplies on board the boat are now needing an alternative method of transport to allow them to reach the area where they are needed.
People on board the boat say that it was in International waters when this incident happened.

Something needs to be done, and it needs to be done NOW.
