Tracking the Libyan Flotilla Ship, July 14 2010

8:32 PM Amalthea is anchored off the El-Arish coast.



3:38 PM Unconfirmed foreign press reports that the boat is now 10-20 nautical miles off of El-Arish.


2:40 PM
At just around 14NM out from El-Arish, it looks like the Amalthea is heading to port there (unless it turns, now that it is within Egyptian territorial waters).




2:28 PM Libyan boat claims to be carrying 2000 tons of aid. Yesterday Israel transferred over 6000 tons of aid.


11:56 AM: Boat still on target to El-Arish, Egypt...



11:30 AM IDF Radio reports that the Libyan ship that was bound for Gaza, has managed to overcome its "technical" problems, restarted its engines, and is continuing to the El-Arish port in Egypt.

IDF Naval warships (and the Muqata blog) are carefully tracking the Libyan ship to ensure it does not attempt to get to Gaza.




In Israel this summer?
Call the US for the price of a Local call!

the idea of the muqata blog tracking the ship to ensure it "does not attempt to get to gaza" is pretty ridiculous. still, i appreciate your realtime reporting, as always.
