The Jerusalem Post reports that the Swedish boat Marianne with 18 passengers has been "interdicted" by Israeli commandos 85 miles from the Gaza coast and towed to Ashdod. The three other vessels in the flotilla turned back and another big-hearted mission ended "with a whimper". Defence Minister Moshe Ya'alon called his operation to deprive desperate, poverty stricken Gazans a "success". The Marianne‘s passengers would be be deported. "There is no humanitarian crisis in Gaza," he added.
