Gaza Flotilla Ignores IDF Warning
JPost – The navy has made first radio contact with the two-boat Gaza flotilla which is approaching the region. The IDF informed the vessels that their current course is leading them toward a naval closure off the coast of Gaza, which is in line with international law.
The vessels were informed that they can turn around and prevent an infringement of the closure or head to a port in Egypt. The activists on board refused to heed the navy’s call and refused to act in accordance with the instructions they were given. The flotilla is now heading toward the area under closure, the navy said.
