Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Monday ordered the defense establishment not to allow any ship to reach Gaza's shores, Israel Radio reported.

Netanahyu made the comments during a meeting of the security cabinet over preparations Israel was taking to deal with a new flotilla expected to be setting sail for Gaza this week.

During the meeting, cabinet ministers voted in favor of a resolution preventing the planned flotilla from arriving in Gaza and giving the IDF authority to prevent the ships' arrival while trying to avoid casualties.
