Israel is facing another potentially explosive confrontation at sea as pro-Palestinian activists sent two more boats to challenge its blockade of the Gaza Strip.
Reports in Israel claimed the navy was prepared to use even more force to stop ships from breaking the blockade.
A top commander told the Jerusalem Post yesterday: ‘We boarded the ship and were attacked as if it was a war.
‘That will mean that we will have to come prepared in the future as if it was a war.’
They know what will happen if they try to break this blockade. When it does, I don't want to hear any crying over it.
