(NEWS) Barak: Lebanese Flotilla A 'Provocation'

"Lebanese Gaza-bound ships will be 'stopped at sea.'

The planned Lebanese flotilla to the Gaza Strip is an 'unneccsary provocation' and Israel holds the Lebanese government responsible to prevent the ships from trying to sail to break the Israel-imposed sea blockade on Gaza, Defense Minister Ehud Barak said Friday.

The Israel Navy was on high alert on Friday amid predictions that a flotilla of two vessels from Lebanon were preparing to depart for the Gaza Strip in an effort to break the Israel-imposed sea blockade by the end of the week."
