Gaza City, December 10 (RHC)-- In Gaza, hundreds of activists have set sail in a “reverse flotilla” to challenge an Israeli naval blockade they say hurts the livelihoods of Palestinian fishermen.
 
The blockade bans Gazans from going more than six nautical miles from shore. Organizers said at least some of the ships breached the boundary.  One of the organizers of the protest, Shorouq Mahmoud, said: "The Palestinian Intifada Coalition and more than 200 young men, women and foreigners decided to break the siege by sailing more than six miles into the sea.  It is a protest against the siege that is not allowing fishermen to enter inside the sea of Gaza and to fish normally."
