Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Saturday evening praised the IDF's takeover of the ship "Estelle" which was attempting to breach Israel's blockade on the Gaza Strip.

"Even the passengers of the ship know there is no humanitarian crisis in Gaza, but rather their goal is to create a provocation and muddy Israel's name," Netanyahu said.

"If human rights were really important to them, they would sail to Syria," Netanyahu added.
