The Foreign Ministry on Monday insisted that a boat carrying Jewish activists bound for the Gaza Strip would be stopped by the navy before reaching the blockaded territory, AFP reported.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor said that if the boat entered the illegal zone off the Gaza coast, it would be stopped and taken to the Ashdod Port.

The boat carrying Jewish activists is on course to arrive in the blockaded Gaza Strip late Tuesday morning.
