    PARIS, (PIC)-- Activists are gearing to launch a new Gaza aid ship from the French port city Marseille late this June.

    It comes a year after Israel lethally attacked the Freedom Flotilla late last May killing nine and injuring dozens.

    Organizers managed to pile enough funds to rent the French ship in time for the third week in June when the second Freedom Flotilla is expected to head to Gaza, said the ship's French spokesman.

    The flotilla will include 15 to 20 ships and will carry some 1,000 passengers from several international ports, including Marseille.

    They said Israel has no choice but to allow them to reach the shores of Gaza or to attack them.
