Israel intercepts Jewish activist boat to Gaza


Israeli warships on Tuesday intercepted a boat of Jewish activists attempting to run a blockade of the Gaza Strip and diverted the vessel to an Israeli port, organisers said.

“Ten Israeli warships forced the boat to head for (the Israeli port) of Ashdod by force, but without raiding the ship,” said Amjad al-Shawa, a Gaza-based organiser.

“They surrendered because they were surrounded. They had no choice,” he added.
