The Al Karame.

According to an IDF communiqué, initial contact has recently been made between the Israel Navy and the lone French flotilla vessel Al-Karame.

The report says that the “Israel Navy notified the Al-Karame that it is on a route to an area that is under a maritime security blockade off the coast of Gaza, and reminded them any supplies they may have on-board may be transferred, legally, through the existing land crossings and the Ashdod Port.”

Earlier the ship’s crew indicated that the Israeli Navy had surrounded and was following the vessel, also claiming that their communication devices had been tampered with.

The Al-Karame left the Greek island of Kastellorizo late on Saturday, carrying 17 people.
