Footage taken from the Mavi Marmara flotilla to Gaza in 2010 shows the militants preparing to attack IDF soldiers. Photo: IDF. – The Israeli Navy is preparing for a so-called “reverse flotilla” expected to leave Gaza on Monday and set out toward Israeli ships enforcing the naval blockade six miles from the Gaza shore, Israel Hayom reported. The flotilla is expected to comprise several boats and dozens of Palestinian activists, as well as Europeans.

Traveling out of Gaza rather than toward it like the Turkish Mavi Marmara in 2010, the “reverse flotilla” is the initiative of an organization called Shabaab Al-Intifada, whose Facebook page says the flotilla’s mission is to break the Israeli naval blockade on Gaza.

Israel Defense Forces officials said Sunday night that they had observed preparations for the flotilla in Gaza.
