JERUSALEM, Israel - A Libyan ship will set sail on Friday on a "humanitarian" mission to break Israel's naval blockade of the Gaza Strip, Libya's Embassy in Greece announced on Friday, according to AFP.

On board will be the son of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, who heads up the Gaddafi International Charity and Development Association sponsoring the sail.

In addition to the "2,000 tons of humanitarian aid in the form of foodstuff and medications," the ship will carry "a number of supporters who are keen on expressing solidarity with the Palestinian people in the plight amidst the siege imposed on Gaza," the ship's organizers said.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has made it clear that humanitarian aide ships can unload their cargo at the Ashdod port for security checks, after which it would be transported by land to the Gaza Strip. No ships will be permitted to breach the naval blockade.
