Israel Intercepts Lone Gaza Flotilla Boat

The Israel Navy on Tuesday intercepted the French flotilla boat Dignite-Al Karame after it had refused to stop heading toward the Gaza shore.

Elite troops from Shayetet 13, a naval commando unit, boarded the vessel minutes after the IDF chief issued the order, and took it over quickly with no resistance on the part of the passengers.

When the Karame was some 50 miles away from Gaza, the Israel Navy began trailing the yacht and contacted the passengers on board, demanding they state their final destination and disclose if they are carrying any weapons.
