One ship from a flotilla that aimed to break Israel’s naval blockade of the Gaza Strip has managed to set sail.

The French-flagged Dignity al-Karama left Greek territorial waters on Saturday evening, according to Haaretz reporter Amira Hass, who is one of 10 participants aboard the ship. It had been anchored in Crete for nearly a week waiting to be joined by other members of the Gaza Freedom Flotilla.

The ship should reach Gaza territorial waters by Monday, The Associated Press reported, citing another activist on board the ship.
