CAIRO — The Libyan organizers of an aid ship trying to breach Israel's blockade the Gaza Strip said Tuesday 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.

The foundation said in a statement posted on its website Tuesday that the Israeli vessel was continuing to shadow the aid ship.

There was no immediate comment from the IDF.
