Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon Friday to stop the impending flotilla that is supposed to set sail to the Gaza Strip in May.
The Israeli prime minister told the UN Chief that the flotilla is being organized by extreme Islamists that are interested only in provocation. He added that the ship's key goal is to fuel tensions, particularly in light of the fact that the Gaza Strip is open to all types of goods brought in via land.
"Hamas is a terrorist organization and Iranian proxy," Netanyahu said, adding that "it was just recently revealed that part of Iran's efforts is to arm [Hamas] and smuggle weapons into the strip".'
