Israel Accused of Sabotaging Irish Flotilla Ship

Organizers of the latest flotilla to try to break the Gaza naval blockade claimed Thursday that Mossad Israeli intelligence agency sabotaged the ship Saoirse (Freedom), which was supposed to sail from Ireland, according to the ship's website. The website claims that the damage was apparently caused by Israeli agents and could have caused the ship to sink in the middle of the ocean.

Flotilla leaders said Wednesday that a check of a ship docked in the Greek port of Piraeus showed that one of its propellers was damaged intentionally, adding that the Mossad was apparently behind the sabotage.
