Israel Intercepts Gaza Flotilla Ship Without Incident

07/19/2011

Israel's Navy intercepted a French ship heading for Gaza, the only member of the pro-Palestinian flotilla to make it to the blockaded waters.

The French-flagged Dignity al-Karama was boarded by Israeli Naval commandoes on Tuesday afternoon, five hours after the Navy first contacted the yacht 50 miles away from the Gaza shore and was told that the yacht's destination was Gaza. The ship was towed to Israel's Ashdod port.
