'Gaza's Ark' Protest Ship Sunk by Mysterious Explosion


Gaza's Ark, a "protest" boat that was preparing to breach Israel's naval blockade of Gaza, which is ruled by the terrorist organization Hamas, was sunk in a mysterious explosion on Tuesday. The blast occurred in Gaza City's port, and was preceded by an anonymous telephone call warning the guard of the ship that it was about to be blown up, organizers of the "protest" project told AFP.

"We blame Israel because we have had very bad experiences with them in the past when they destroyed several solidarity boats," said project manager Mahfouz Kabariti.
