Palestinians receive a boat carrying a group of pro-Palestinian peace activists and European politicians upon its arrival in Gaza City. Israel allowed the "Dignity," a small yacht, to sail to the Gaza Strip in the fourth such voyage in protest at an Israeli blockade of the Hamas-ruled territory. The boat is carrying British academics, a British reconstructive surgeon travelling to Gaza to volunteer in hospitals, international human rights workers and journalists with the intention of highlighting the plight of Gaza's 1.5 million residents, with special attention to the hundreds of Gaza students who have been unable to attend their classes abroad because of the blockade.
