President Nitzana Darshan-Leitner of the Shurat Hadin Israel Law Center has congratulated the Israel Defense Forces on stopping a flotilla of ships whose purpose was to break Israel’s naval blockade of Gaza.

The attorney noted, “Until now, the flotillas were caught by the army, dragged to the port of Ashdod and returned home as if nothing had happened. No more. This time the ships will not be returned to their owners but will be transferred to the victims of terror, following a lawsuit we filed a month ago with the Jerusalem District Court. For the first time, the organizers of the flotilla will learn that there is a price for provocation and systematic violation of international law, and there is a cost to support a terrorist organization.”
