Azerbaijan, Baku, June 3 / Trend U. Sadikhova /
Two Azerbaijani citizens, who were detained on ships of the international convoy "Freedom Flotilla" which transported humanitarian aid to Gaza, will return home on Sunday, the Interior Ministry Immigration Department told Trend.
"We have still two citizens from Azerbaijan because they will have their flight only on Sunday. On Sunday they fly back. They are kept in the airport. There is a special place for the people who are willing and have to fly but they can not fly to the country. They are in the Ben Gurion Airport," a message said.
According to a source, Azerbaijani citizens have voluntarily agreed to leave Israel and fly directly to Baku, but not to Turkey, as many activists of "Freedom Flotilla" did.
The Interior Ministry refused to disclose the names of Azerbaijani citizens in purpose of safety, adding that their condition and state are normal. It is known that both of them are men.
"They are kept under the watching of the immigration office, but they are not arrested. They could not talk to anybody," the Interior Ministry said.
"Freedom Flotilla" consists of six vessels. There were about 600 activists from Europe and Arab countries, including dozens of deputies on the board. The rally was organized by human rights activists from Ireland, Sweden, Greece, Turkey, Algeria and Kuwait. They intended to bring 10,000 tons of humanitarian supplies, including medicines and construction materials to the Gaza Strip. According to the world media, about 19 people died during Israeli special operation. Israel confirmed that 10 people died.
