Israeli ambassador to the UN Gabriella Shalev filed a complaint with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and the president of the UN security council on Thursday, following the capture of the ship which had set out from Iran carrying a large quantity of weapons allegedly intended for use by Hizbullah. Shalev cited the contents of the vessel's cargo and its route as pointing to severe breaches of Security Council resolutions. In response, an Iranian official denied the shipment was sent from Iran, Israel Radio reported. Further Israeli "tricks" should be expected in the near future, as part of an Israeli attempt to divert attention from the Goldstone Report, the official was quoted as saying.
