An activist abroad the Gaza-bound flotilla on Tuesday claimed that Israel has taken advantage of the economic situation in Greece in an attempt to prevent vessels departing to the Strip, Army Radio reported on Tuesday.

Jewish-Canadian Dilan Kenner claimed that Greece is operating in Israel's favor as a result of economic pressure Jerusalem placed on Athens due to the current financial crisis in the country, according to the report.

The Canadian ship Tahrir was stopped on Monday, five kilometers from its anchoring point in Greece. Kenner explained that the Greek coast guard intercepted the ship fifteen minutes after it departed. Authorities boarded the ship and towed it back to Cyprus. Kenner claimed that the move was a clear act of trespassing which the Greeks had no right to carry out.
