The Flotilla's lead ship, Akdenez, was subjected to an unexpected inspection by the Guinea Bissau International Ships Registry (GBISR). Despite passing previous inspections, the Flotilla complied with the request.

However, before completion, GBISR withdrew the Guinea Bissau flag from two of the Flotilla's ships, including a cargo vessel loaded with over 5000 tons of aid for Gaza.

The Freedom Flotilla Coalition expressed frustration, stating that without a flag, they cannot sail. They accused Guinea-Bissau of aiding Israel's blockade of Gaza.

Meanwhile, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) confirmed plans to collaborate with the United Nations' World Food Program (WFP) to deliver aid to Gaza by sea. They emphasized the need for coordination and the safety of humanitarian actors in delivering assistance to Palestinians.

U.S. and WFP officials are working to ensure the delivery of aid in an independent, neutral, and impartial manner.
