The women's boat to gaza was 35 nautical miles (65 kilometers) from their destination when it was diverted to an Israeli port by the Navy. Today there has also been Israeli bombing in Gaza.
This SOS message went out from the boat before it was boarded. "Work for the freedom and human rights, the lifting of the blockade against the people of Gaza. And for the freedom for the Palestinian people and peace in the Middle East, " says Nobel Peace Laureate Mairead Maguire. "We can all do this together. It's not a dream."
