He mentioned that the International Freedom Flotilla Alliance, which includes the International Committee to Break the Siege on Gaza, is collaborating with the Turkish humanitarian relief organization IHH, Jo24 reported.

Together, they aim to initiate an international movement to support the people of Gaza by sea. This movement will involve multiple ships carrying aid, international activists, and prominent figures who oppose the war on Gaza.

Preparations are in full swing for this international grassroots movement, which comes at a crucial time when the people of Gaza are in desperate need of hope and political support. They are advocating for their right to freedom and liberation from occupation, as well as the freedom to travel to and from their homeland without facing restrictions from the occupying forces.

Al-Rifaiyah explained that the coalition's committees are working tirelessly to complete all necessary preparations, including logistical arrangements, aid distribution plans, participant coordination, and media campaigns. The fleet is expected to set sail from several ports, with hundreds of activists and prominent figures from dozens of countries worldwide taking part.

"In Jordan, we are collaborating with partners across several Arab countries," stated Al-Rifaiyah, emphasizing their commitment as members of the International Committee to Break the Siege on Gaza. This collaboration, in conjunction with the Turkish organization IHH, aims to ensure broad participation from Jordanians, building on their past involvement, notably in the Freedom Flotilla (Mavi Marmara ship in 2010). A dedicated team comprising colleagues and activists with prior experience in breaking the siege on Gaza has been formed to provide assistance and oversee operations.

Al-Rifaiyah extended an invitation to interested parties, public figures, unions, social and media organizations, activists, and influencers willing to participate based on specific criteria. These criteria will be submitted to the fleet's management for selecting participants according to allocated quotas for each country.

He stressed that the people of Gaza deserve every effort, including the potential risks of sailing, to deliver aid directly to them without facing restrictions imposed by the occupying forces.

This endeavor will be carried out in collaboration with reputable charitable institutions experienced in humanitarian efforts, aiming to serve the people of Gaza and bolster their resilience and quality of life.
