TEHRAN, August 4 - Israeli forces have seized a second boat belonging to the international Freedom Flotilla coalition which was carrying a relief cargo to the besieged Gaza Strip in face of a draconian blockade imposed by Tel Aviv.

Israel seizes second Gaza-bound Flotilla boat

TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - The incident occurred days after the Israeli navy seized a Norwegian-flagged boat belonging to the fotilla.

The vessel, named Freedom for Gaza and carrying 12 people, was taken to the Israeli port of Ashdod on Saturday, the military said, adding the people on board were taken for "further inquiry."

The first "Freedom Flotilla", carrying medical equipment, was intercepted en route to "break the blockade" on Gaza last month. 

Four boats left from Scandinavia in mid-May and stopped in some 28 ports along the way, with two remaining behind after a recent stop in the Italian port of Palermo.
