IDF Ready to Use Force – If Need Be – Against Flotilla
Senior military officials reveal that the plan is to proceed as with past flotillas – no matter the consequences.
The IDF is scrambling to face the threats of another “Freedom Flotilla” arriving in Gaza Sunday, security officials revealed – and may have to use force.
As of Sunday morning, the ‘Freedom Flotilla III’ is comprised of 47 people on 4 boats – Marianne with 18 people, the Rachel with 12 people, Vagoliano with 12 people, and the Vitrio with 9 people. Tens of activists are rumored to be attempting to join; a fifth ship is due to join as well, but as of Sunday morning has not.
A security official explained Saturday night to Walla! News that the IDF is prepared to act with this flotilla as they did in the past – and hinted to the Mavi Marmara incident of 2010, where Shayetet 13 stormed the vessel after the flotilla ignored several demands to stand down.
