The aim of the Libyan backed aid ship the Amalthea remains to sail directly to Gaza, Youssef Sawani, executive director of Gaddafi International Charity and Development Foundation, which has mounted the operation, said Sunday in an interview with Army Radio.

In response to these comments Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman told Army Radio on Sunday that “no ship of any kind will be allowed to arrive at Gaza.”

“I hope that common sense will prevail,” said Lieberman.  “They can deliver aid for Gaza to [Egyptian port] El-Arish or Ashdod.”

The defense minister added that Israel was not looking for a confrontation but that no one would be allowed to undermine the country’s sovereignty.
