The Israeli Navy intercepted and boarded the “Estelle”, a schooner  flying under the Finnish flag, that was en-route to Gaza in an attempt to break the Israel blockade of the Hamas-led terror state.

Unlike the Mavi Marmara, the passengers on the “Estelle” did not used violence, and the boat was redirected to the Ashdod port.

While the activists claimed they were bringing humanitarian aid to Gaza, including tons of cement, there was no aid whatsoever on the boat.

Observers had previously noted that the boat was riding too high in the water to be carrying tons of cement.
