Chairman of the United Arab List party, Ayman Odeh, took to Twitter on Monday, expressing outrage at the IDF's Monday morning interception of a ship attempting to break the blockade on Gaza.
"#FreedomFlotilla," the tweet was tagged , after which Odeh writes, "Gaza must be removed from siege."
Some 18 passengers were aboard the ship, the Marianne av Göteborg
, which was peaceably boarded by members of the Israeli Navy. The ship was then redirected towards the port of Ashdod, and the passengers were taken for interrogation.
