Can't be letting stuff like food, drinking water and medical aid to reach the Gaza Death Camp, that has been declared VERBOTEN by the Zionist Regime. That would interfere with the planned Israeli extinction of Gazans, by either killing the Palestinians outright or starving them to death.
The IDF needs to surround an aid ship with 18 gunboats? Did you expect any less from the Tel Aviv Terror Masters?

Reporters from Al-Jadeed and Al-Jazeera TVs said the Israeli navy fired three times on the ship. The shooting caused no casualties. The local Al-Jadeed station says Israeli troops then boarded the ship and threatened the crew.
It said the ship was surrounded by 18 Israeli gunboats demanding the crew turn back.
The Israeli army confirmed the report, adding that the boat was towed to the Ashdod port and that the crew was taken in for questioning.
The journalists claimed that the Navy had contacted the ship's captain over the radio and warned him not to continue towards Gaza. The captain said that the Israel troops damaged the radios and other technical apparatus.
The Togo-flagged "Tali," with about 60 tons of aid and eight activists and journalists, left Lebanon Tuesday. After an overnight stop in Cyprus, it sailed on to Gaza Wednesday morning trying to reach the strip in defiance of an Israeli blockade.
The supplies were donated by Lebanese citizens and organizations.
