Israeli forces have reportedly stopped the three-vessel Freedom Flotilla which was nearing the Gaza Strip, report news media.
According to Palestinian media, Israeli troops have blocked the way of the boats and directed them toward the port of Ashdod, some 40 kilometres south of Tel Aviv, says PressTV.
Reports say all connections with Freedom Flotilla have been stopped.
About 40 activists from 15 countries are on board the vessels.
The flotilla left the Italian city of Palermo on July 21. The flotilla aimed to break the Israeli regime’s blockade on the coastal enclave.
The embargo has been in place since 2007. It has led to a catastrophic humanitarian situation in Gaza.
