Israel claims that intercepting and stopping the Swedish aid ship Estelle, which was on its way to Gaza, in international waters was done in line with international law.
The Swedish ship was 55 kilometers off the coast of Gaza when it was stopped and boarded in its attempt to breach the Israeli blockade. The cargo included olive trees, cement, medical equipment, book s and children's toys.
Press TV has interviewed Mr. Edward Spannaus, with Executive Intelligence Review in Washington, about how, if at all, this act and the collective punishment and occupation of Gazans is legal under international law.
