(NEWS) IDF Chief Warns Of Possible Clash As Flotillas Head To Gaza

"IDF Chief of Staff Gabi Ashkenazi warned the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee Tuesday there may be more clashes and casualties if a new flotilla tries to break Israel’s maritime blockade of Gaza.

Libya allegedly plans to send at least one ship – and possibly more – to the region in just such an attempt next month, according to the Palestine Telegraph. A Tripoli-based group calling itself the Libyan Civil Mission to Support the Palestinian People released a statement Tuesday saying it would coordinate the launch of the flotilla – to be dubbed 'Jerusalem 5' – together with one to be led by British ex-parliamentarian George Galloway."
