July 13, 2010 17:43

The IDF on Tuesday afternoon confirmed that it had made radio contact with a Libyan aid ship trying to breach Israel's blockade of the Gaza Strip.

The confirmation came after the ship's organizers said that an Israeli military vessel had confronted the ship and ordered it to change course for the Egyptian port of el-Arish.

The Gadhafi International Charity and Development Foundation said its boat refused to alter its destination and will steam on for Gaza.
