Israel’s navy intercepted an activist boat seeking to
break the country’s decade-long blockade of the
Gaza Strip, saying it was boarded without incident
and was being directed to shore.

The navy said in a statement on Wednesday its
forces had “redirected” the sailboat in order to
prevent a “breach of the lawful maritime blockade”
of the Palestinian enclave.
It said this was done “in accordance with
government directives and after exhausting all
diplomatic channels”.
