The third Free Gaza ship, the SS Dignity, anchored in the Gaza harbor on Saturday morning after setting sail from Cyprus Friday evening. Aboard were several European Parliamentarians from England, Italy and Switzerland as well as several Arab leaders, Human rights activists and Journalists.

This marks the fourth ship within three months to successfully arrive in Gaza. The voyages, organized by the Free Gaza movement, aim at breaking the Israeli siege on the area by opening the coastal border so Gazans can move freely in and out of the country.

The Gazan governmental committee for against the siege, which is affiliated with the de facto government, announced that a special agenda has been prepared for the solidarity delegation. They will give presentations and tours of some of the hardest hit areas in the Gaza Strip, particularly camps and hospitals.

The crew of the latest voyage brought with them one metric ton of medicines, most of which are varieties of basic pain killers and aspirin. These medications were said to be in desperately short supply, and mostly unavailable in local pharmacies.
