Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman Friday instructed Israeli representatives at the UN to submit a complaint to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon against the flotilla being organized by female activists which is due to leave Lebanon for Gaza on Sunday.

According to a Foreign Ministry statement Israel is working with other states in order to prevent the "unnecessarily provocative" flotilla from leaving Lebanon.

"Every state in the region, including those that do not have diplomatic relations with Israel, understands that a flotilla like this will cause damage to the entire area," Lieberman said.
