You might recall the last time the Israeli Navy tried to stop a convoy of “peaceful” protesters bound for Gaza. We asked if there wasn’t a better way.
Apparently the Israelis learn fast and took a different approach, applying “lawfare” to largely eliminate the problem. When a boarding was necessary, it went a lot smoother (and here). Apparently the Israeli’s decided to take the initiative in the information war and jammed the blockade runner’s communications.
Most significantly they managed to make this a “non-event.”
There has been another attempt to run the blockade. Actually more of an attempt to create news, but it doesn’t seem to have made much of an impression, at least in the West. Here is a report:
The two vessels stopped were Canadian and Irish flagged.
