Lieberman: Gaza aid convoy is violent propaganda against Israel
Foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman called the 8-ship Freedom Flotilla scheduled to arrive in Gaza on Friday night violent propaganda against Israel’s sovereignty, Israel Radio reported on Friday.
“The aid convoy is violent propaganda against Israel, and Israel will not allow its sovereignty to be threatened in any way, in any place, land, air or sea,” Lieberman said during a foreign ministry briefing on the aid convoy’s progress towards the shores of Gaza.
“There is no humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip,” Liebeman added. “Despite Hamas’ war crimes against Israeli citizens and the thousands of rockets fired at Israeli towns, Israel continues to respond in the most humane ways possible.”
