Finally got it to download! Thanks..hard to find much on this right now
Great that you got to watch the videos. There isn’t much going on now that they are sailing towards Gaza, when they get closer and if the Israeli Navy get involved, then there will be more info. Hopefully they will attain their goals of delivering much needed humanitarian aid to the people of Gaza.
Israel, of course, doesn’t want this to happen, so we’ll have to wait and see. They are all out doing their propaganda wherever they can.
