Gaza-Bound Israelis have Remands Extended

Three Israelis who attempted to violate Israel’s naval blockade on Hamas had their remands extended by three days on Sunday. The three are suspected of harming Israel’s security, aiding the enemy and inciting rebellion.

They attempted to sail to Gaza aboard the ship Estelle, which was carrying primarily European activists. The activists claimed to be motivated by humanitarian interests, but a search of their ship found no aid.
