Sweden Launches Probe of Israel Over Flotillas


Sweden launched an investigation against Israel on Thursday, over the Israel's defense of its legal maritime blockade on the terrorist group Hamas's enclave of Gaza in 2010 and 2012, according to Agence France Presse.

The 2010 incident was the Mavi Marmara flotilla's attempted breach of the maritime blockade. In 2012 the Estelle, a ship bearing a Finnish flag, was stopped trying to breach the blockade as well. Both incidents featured Swedish citizens on board the ships.
