Israel says to stop another Gaza aid ship dispite int'l outcry

 

Israel will stop another boat carrying aid and activists from breaking its illegal blockade and reaching the Gaza Strip, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said on Friday.

Israel, facing an international outcry over its naval operation on Monday in which nine Turkish activists were killed on a ship bound for Gaza, has vowed to prevent the vessel Rachel Corrie from reaching the Gaza coast.

The attack which created global reaction, brought the relations between Turkey and Israel to the verge of breaking.

"We will stop the ship, and also any other ship that will try to harm Israeli sovereignty. There is no chance the Rachel Corrie will reach the coast of Gaza," Lieberman said on Israel's Channel 1 television.
