Iran Revolutionary Guards ready to escort Gaza ships

Iran Revolutionary Guards ready to escort Gaza ships 06 Jun 2010 12:40:35 GMT Source: Reuters TEHRAN, June 6 (Reuters) - Irans elite Revolutionary Guards are ready to provide a military escort to cargo ships trying to break Israels blockade of Gaza, a representative of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Sunday.
Irans navy forces are ready to escort the peace flotilla to Gaza with all their powers and capabilities, Ali Shirazi, Khameneis representative inside the Revolutionary Guards, was quoted as saying by the semi-official Mehr news agency.
Any intervention by the Iranian military would be considered highly provocative by Israel which accuses Iran of supplying weapons to Hamas, the Islamist movement which rules Gaza.
The Guards, with their own navy, air force and command structure separate from the regular armed forces, are seen as fiercely loyal to the values of the Islamic Republic.
If the Supreme Leader issues an order for this then the Revolutionary Guard naval forces will do their best to secure the ships, Shirazi said. It is Irans duty to defend the innocent people of Gaza.

“Landau: Flotilla probe committee ‘dangerous precedent’”

Maybe so, but it there are also armed Iranian Marines on board, that makes it arguably a troop transport vessel, carrying troops from a hostile coutry.

“Security Chief: Hamas Still Smuggling, Can Strike Tel Aviv”
by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu
SNIPPET: “Terrorists in the de facto Hamas government continue to smuggle weapons into Gaza, and possess 5,000 medium-range rockets with a range of 25 miles, including several that can bomb Tel Aviv, security chief Yuval Diskin said Tuesday.
Speaking to the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Security Committee, Diskin warned that lifting the maritime embargo on Hamas would be a huge security breach. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu already has rejected a proposal by the Quartet’s Middle East envoy Tony Blair that Israel allow aid to reach Gaza by sea after it is inspected at Cyprus.
Diskin also informed the committee that 80 percent of the Gaza rockets, or about 4,000, are in the hands of Hamas, while the remainder are scattered among the Islamic Jihad and other terrorist groups.”
“The suspects are to be considered armed and dangerous” — that is one of the prettiest sounds on earth, at sunset.
