The IDF has released video showing some of the preparations for the next flotillas expected to try and break through Israel's naval blockade of terrorist controlled Gaza. 

The video shows naval boats using a water cannon against a ship which played the role of a pro-Hamas vessel trying to breach the blockade.

In the exercise, the vessel is named Celery and is asked for its destination. The Celery replies that it is headed to Gaza and that it is not alarmed by the IDF's intention to stop it. The exchange is conducted in less-than-perfect English. 

Gaza terrorists have fired thousands of missiles at Israel's civilian population in the past decade and openly vow to destroy the Jewish state and kill its inhabitants.
