(NEWS) Blair: Aid Flotillas Not Helpful

"Quartet envoy asks Lebanese Gaza-bound ships to reconsider journey.

Quartet Representative Tony Blair Friday urged the Lebanese flotilla intent on heading towards Gaza this weekend to reconsider its journey.

'I urge the Lebanese aid ship to reconsider its intention to set sail to the Gaza shores to deliver aid to the people. As the UN Under-Secretary General said yesterday, such convoys are not helpful, do not resolve the economic difficulties in Gaza and carry the risk of escalation needlessly', said Blair."
