Strategic Affairs Minister Moshe Ya'alon said reports that participants in the flotilla to Gaza plan on attacking IDF soldiers with lethal force are accurate, according to an interview Wednesday with Israel Radio.

He dismissed the flotilla organizer's claims that participants were peaceful, saying "before the last flotilla they presented themselves as pensioners and innocents, but our forces encountered fundamentalist Muslim extremists."

On the situtation in Gaza he added "there is no crisis in Gaza, their economy is florishing."
