Israel Arrests Rabbis Attempting to Bring Aid into Gaza; Gaza Freedom Flotilla Stalled in Turkey

HeadlineApr 29, 2024

Israeli authorities arrested seven people, including a number of rabbis and Jewish American peace activists, who tried to bring aid into Gaza on Friday. We will have more on this story later in the show.

Plans for a “Freedom Flotilla” to sail from Turkey to Gaza with 5,000 tons of lifesaving aid have stalled after Guinea-Bissau decided to remove its flag from two of the vessels on the flotilla following pressure from Israel. We will speak to an organizer of the flotilla later in the broadcast.
