Tel Aviv(Israel), September 28: Israel on Tuesday, Sep 28 prevented an aid ship carrying Jewish anti-blockade activists bound for the Gaza Strip from reaching its destination, the Israeli military said.

The military statement said the 'Irene" was boarded after its captain ignored two warnings that it was breaking Israeli and international law. But there was no violence or attacks.

The 'Irene", sailing under a British flag, left Cyprus on Sunday, Sep 26 and was en route to the Gaza Strip, which has been subject to an Israeli blockade since 2007.
