Israel fires warning shots at Malaysian aid ship to Gaza

Israeli naval forces fired warning shots at a Malaysian aid ship as it approached the Gaza Strip, forcing the vessel to retreat to Egypt, organisers and the Israeli military say, quoted by Syney Morning Herald. “The MV Finch, carrying sewage pipes to Gaza, had warning shots fired at it by Israeli forces in the Palestinian security zone this morning at 6.54am,” said Shamsul Azhar from the Perdana Global Peace Foundation. “The vessel was in the Palestinian security zone, about 400 metres from the Gaza shoreline, when they were intercepted by Israeli naval forces,” he said, adding it was now anchored 30 nautical miles away in Egyptian territory.
