Israel is determined to use force against the upcoming Gaza flotilla

Less than two weeks before the start of a new flotilla to Gaza, the determination of Israeli military officials is flawless: no boats will be allowed to break the naval blockade imposed by the Jewish state in order to reach the territory controlled by the Islamist movement Hamas.

Israel does not intend to make an excessive use of force, but if his soldiers "face violence" of some passengers, "they respond", which means there is likely to be injured and perhaps killed.

No one knows exactly how many boats of this new humanitarian expedition will go to sea, probably before the end of June. It estimates vary between ten and fifteen ships, with a total of about a thousand passengers, numbers that could be scaled down. Especially since the political pressure for weeks by some governments of the approximately 23 organizations involved.
