Al Jazeera TV has reported that organizers of a Libyan aid ship will continue their voyage to Gaza.

This comes despite Israeli, warnings that it will intercept the ship before it reaches the coastal strip.

The Moldova-flagged Al Amal is funded by an organization chaired by the son of Libyan leader, Muammar Gaddafi. The ship is carrying a team of 15 volunteers, and 2-thousand tons of rice, sugar, corn oil and olive paste.

It set sail on Saturday from the Greek port of Lav-rio. Organizers reportedly dismissed Israeli reports that the vessel is actually heading to Egypt.

They said the voyage is purely humane mission, insisting it is neither provocative nor hostile.

Meanwhile, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he would meet Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak in Cairo this week, to work on promoting direct talks with the Palestinians.
