(NEWS) Israel To UN: Stop Lebanese Ships

"Navy and Shayetet go on high alert in preparation for ships' arrival.

Israel's UN Ambassador Gabriela Shalev urged Lebanon and the international community to prevent two Lebanese ships, Junia and Julia, from attempting to break the naval blockade of Gaza, warning that the vessels would be stopped.

'Israel reserves its right under international law to use all necessary means to prevent these ships from violating the...naval blockade,' Shalev wrote in letters to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and the Security Council which were obtained Thursday by the Associated Press."
