Barak demands that Lebanon prevent flotilla to Gaza

Defense Minister Ehud Barak called on the Lebanese government to take responsibility for preventing an aid flotilla that is intended to leave Lebanon for Gaza.
According to Barak, the flotilla which is set to leave in two days time is not humanitarian but instead it is intended to cause a hostile reaction.
Barak announced that Israel will allow the flotilla to anchor in either Ashdod or Egypt but if the organizers insist on trying to reach Gaza then Israel will be forced to stop it.
