Israeli Navy to use new methods to prevent breach of Gaza blockade

Jerusalem, June 7 (ANI): The Israeli Navy has said that it will use different methods to prevent vessels from breaking through its imposed sea blockade on Gaza.

"We will do things differently in the future. There are issues that have to do with the timing of such a boarding, the way to distract the attention of the people on board from what is really happening," a senior IDF officer involved in planning such operations told The Jerusalem Post.

"This is not a simple task and currently there is no such technology," a senior defense official said.

"The navy has been in touch with MAFAT for a couple of years already with the goal of developing such technology."

Meanwhile on Sunday, the IDF issued an advisory forbidding all soldiers from traveling to Turkey.

The military advisory follows a similar recommendation that was issued last week, following the navy operation, by the Counter-Terrorism Bureau in the Prime Minister's Office. (ANI)
