Chairman of the United Arab List party, Ayman Odeh, took to Twitter on Monday, expressing outrage at the IDF's Monday morning interception of a ship attempting to break the blockade on Gaza.

"#FreedomFlotilla," the tweet was tagged , after which Odeh writes, "Gaza must be removed from siege."

Some 18 passengers were aboard the ship, the Marianne av Göteborg, which was peaceably boarded by members of the Israeli Navy. The ship was then redirected towards the port of Ashdod, and the passengers were taken for interrogation.
