Israeli Prime Minister Defends Blockade, Boarding Of Flotilla
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu defended the Gaza blockade and the IDF boarding an aid flotilla.
“The idea was to break the sea blockade. Had it been, tens, hundreds of ships would come later, and in each boat hundreds of rockets, missiles could be brought,” he said.
“Our duty is to inspect every boat that goes to Gaza. If we don’t do this we would have an Iranian port in Gaza.”
“This wasn’t a love ship,” he said. “This is a hate boat…It was a terrorist operation.”Click here for reuse options!
