An Israeli activist told Israel Radio that the two Israeli Navy ships have escorted the Gaza-bound boat Irene for half an hour, and more ships are on the horizon.

"The army established contact with the captain, and asked him where we are headed," Rami Elhanan said. "The navy asked to bypass the ship from 5 miles to the right, and we complied.""We said we are headed to Gaza and sailing under the British flag," Elhanan added.



Elhanan also reported that the captain was not told that the boat will be stopped. "I have no idea when, if at all, we will be intercepted," he said.
