Navy against the Turkish-registered passenger ship “Mavi Marmara” were three Norwegians.

Earlier today, diplomats from the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (UD) were on their way to Ela Prison in Beersheba where they are being held to help them.

Vebjørn Dysvik, advisor at the Norwegian Embassy in Israel, says he’s working towards their release and deportation. All three have been given clean clothes, food, and water and are in good condition, given the circumstances.

“As we understand it, a deportation process has been initiated to send them out of Israel. We’re still requesting further information as to progress and speed of it,” he tells NRK.

Earlier today, Bjørn Jahnsen, the UD’s head of communications, said it could take a couple of days before they are deported.
