In response to reports that the Libyan aid ship Almathea still plans to attempt to sail directly to the Gaza Strip, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman stated that "no ship of any kind will arrive at Gaza," in an interview with Army Radio on Sunday.

"I hope that common sense will prevail," said Lieberman.  "They can deliver aid for Gaza to [Egyptian port] el-Arish or Ashdod."

The defense minister added that Israel was not looking for a confrontation but that no one would be allowed to undermine the country's sovereignty.
