Ashkenazi: Resistance from flotillas could cause casualties

IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi warned on Tuesday that any resistance on board flotillas bound for Gaza could lead to more casualties.
Speaking at a Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee meeting, Ashkenazi said "this is a challenge for the IDF and for Israel."
"If we see large ships bound for Gaza and force is used then we do not dismiss the possibility of casualties," he said.
The chief of staff made the comments amid reports that a Libyan aid flotilla is set to leave for Gaza in October.
