(Newser) – With more aid ships on the way to Gaza, this doesn't bode well: A commander in the Israeli Navy tells the Jerusalem Post that any ships trying to break the sea blockade on the Gaza Strip can expect an aggressive response. "We boarded the ship and were attacked as if it was a war," said the anonymous officer. "That will mean that we will have to come prepared in the future as if it was a war."
