The Israel Navy went on high alert Thursday amid forecasts that a flotilla of two vessels from Lebanon was preparing to depart for the Gaza Strip in an effort to break the blockade by the end of the week.

Defense officials said that the navy had deployed ships at sea to stop the Lebanese vessels and that commandos from the navy’s Flotilla 13 – known as the Shayetet – were put on standby in case they would be needed to board the ships to prevent them from sailing into the Gaza Strip. The organizer of the ships is Syrian national Yasser Kashlak."
