The French-flagged boat managed to leave the Greek port on Monday night despite Greece’s efforts to stop any flotilla vessels, but was stopped by the Israeli warships. Reports say the entire crew has been arrested and the boat has been towed to Ashdod Port.

The fate of the 16 activists of French, Canadian, Greek, Tunisian and Swedish nationals on the French Dignite-al Karama boat that has been forcefully taken to Ashdod Port is unknown. The boat is said to arrive at the port in two hours after being seized.
