Waiting at the Iskenderun Port of Turkey as for now, the ship will carry 3 tonnes of aid to Pakistan after UN inspection team finishes its work for the international committee to probe deadly raid.

The ship "Gazze" is expected to sail in a couple of days.

IHH, (The Foundation For Human Rights And Freedoms And Humanitarian Relief), also started a relief campaign for Pakistan and called for help from Turkish people.

Donations made for this campaign will be delivered to Pakistan with the "Gazze" ship.

Nine people, including eight Turkish and one U.S. citizen of Turkish descent, were killed when Israeli forces raided a Gaza-bound aid flotilla on May 31. Around 30 people were wounded in the attack.

The United Nations (UN) Human Rights Council set up the international fact-finding mission on June 2 to investigate violations of international law, including international humanitarian and human rights law, resulting from the Israeli attacks on the flotilla of ships carrying humanitarian assistance.
