“Israel” Fighting Flotilla Activists under Water
Local Editor

"Israel" has managed to sabotage another vessel seeking to reach the Strip, this time in Turkey, one of the organizers of an international aid flotilla to the blockaded Gaza Strip said Wednesday.
Blaming the Zionist entity for "causing damage" to Irish ship 'Saoirse' (Gaelic for freedom), which was slated to carry some 20 activists, one of the activists said he had spoken to the ship's crew while it was docking in Turkey, and they had no doubt the damage was intentional.

"It was an intentional sabotage, no doubt. The Irish removed the ship from the water, and this act of sabotage was intended to deactivate the ship. The activists took photos of the damage, and the pictures will be presented Thursday in a press conference in Dublin."
The flotilla's organizers have been trying to maintain secrecy so far, and have only agreed to say that the ship was docking in one of the Mediterranean ports. Nonetheless, the activist expressed his confidence that "Israel" was responsible for the damage.

"We know that "Israel" is a sophisticated enough country, and as much as we have tried to maintain secrecy, we knew it had more sources than we. It's clear who had an interest to harm the ship."
He added that "there were guards on the ship, but with diving equipment and skills it's hard to detect someone coming from under the water," He stressed.

Meanwhile, "Israeli" officials have expressed their satisfaction over the developments. Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his War Minister Ehud Barak are continuing their talks with European leaders and American senators in a bid to have the entire flotilla canceled.

"We're continuing to exert pressure, so that the flotilla won't set sail at all. "Israel" prefers not to see the flotilla arrive in the region, but if it does - it will face the IDF. We won't let them enter Gaza in any way," an Israeli official stated.

Earlier Wednesday, Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny called on "Israel" to avoid actions that could harm people sailing with international aid flotilla that plans to challenge a naval blockade of Gaza.

"I would call upon the "Israeli" government not to take any action that would in any way cause injury or harm (to those on the flotilla)," Kenny told the lower house of parliament.
