The Israeli regime has called on the United Nations to act against a Swedish ship attempting to break the blockade of the Gaza Strip.

“I call on the Secretary General, the Security Council, and all responsible members of the international community to take immediate action to end this provocation,” Israeli envoy to the UN Ron Prosor said in a recent letter to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, and the security council’s president for October, Guatemalan envoy Gert Rosenthal.

The Swedish vessel Estelle is transporting 17 activists and a cargo of humanitarian aid for the Palestinians. The ship left the Italian port city of Naples on October 6 and is expected to arrive near Gaza in about a week.

Prosor also stated that Tel Aviv remained “determined to enforce its naval blockade of the Gaza Strip” and that it will take any action to stop the vessel.

On May 31, 2010, Israeli forces attacked the Gaza-bound humanitarian Freedom Flotilla in international waters in the Mediterranean Sea, killing nine Turkish nationals aboard Turkey’s Mavi Marmara and injuring about 50 other activists who were part of the six-ship convoy.

Also in November 2011, a Canadian and an Irish yacht were prevented by Israeli forces in international waters to transport pro-Palestinian activists and medical supplies to Gaza.

The Tel Aviv regime denies about 1.7 million people in Gaza their basic rights, such as freedom of movement, jobs that pay proper wages, and adequate healthcare and education.
