The statement was made in a letter by the Israeli Ambassador to the US, Gabrela Shalev, to the Secretary General of the UN,Ban Ki Moon and Security General Joy Ogwu.

to reach Gaza, as per the international laws. Further more he stated that these vessels can also carry weapons and ammunition support for the people of Gaza, and also people who are who would be having provocative and confrontational intentions against the Israelites.
