Navy Takes Over Gaza-Bound Boat

The Israeli Navy took control Tuesday morning of the boat Irene, which carried Jewish activists trying to break the sea embargo on Hamas-controlled Gaza.
A navy commander had advised the boat’s captain to head for the Ashdod port to avoid a confrontation and allow authorities to transfer to Gaza any humanitarian aid that may be on board.
