Defense Minister Ehud Barak urged US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and US National Security Adviser General James Jones to prevent a Lebanese vessel planning to bring humanitarian aid to Gaza from setting sail, in a telephone conversation on Saturday.

Barak said in the conversation that an attempt to sail directly for Gaza would be a "needless provocation," as humanitarian aid would be allowed to enter the territory after undergoing a security check at Ashdod Port.
