IDF stops Gaza boat attempting to violate the naval blockade
Muslim terrorists in Gaza attempted to breach Israel’s sea blockade, in a fresh challenge to Israeli forces following months of terrorism, violent riots and arson attacks.
Hundreds of terrorism-sympathizers gathered to see off the boat carrying nine passengers, including four Muslim terrorists said to have been wounded by the IDF during violent riots along the border.
A similar attempt was made in May and resulted in Israeli forces seizing the main boat several kilometers out to sea.

Gaza boats are generally limited to six nautical miles offshore. The Israeli navy regularly fires warning shots at vessels who go further.
