National Infrastructures Minister Uzi Landau said Monday that the Navy will stop the Libyan aid ship currently at sea if it attempts to reach Gaza port .

Landau told Israel Radio that "this is a government decision we are all behind," and stated that the Navy would not use paintball guns as they did previously, having learned lessons following events on board the Mavi Marmara last month. He also reiterated Israel's standpoint regarding the matter, specifically that Hamas is a terrorist organization and that Israel would not allow the transfer of any cargo via Gaza port.
