Israeli warships intercept the Irene – 9.40am

28-9-2010
Israeli warships have intercepted a Jewish aid boat heading for the Gaza Strip to break the crippling blockade of the impoverished territory.

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

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