The Israeli navy seized a ship on Tuesday that was apparently smuggling weapons destined for Hamas in the Gaza Strip.
The Israel Defense Forces Spokesman Unit said that the ship "Victoria" originated from the Lattakia port in Syria and sailed to Mersin, Turkey. It was seized while on its way from Turkey destined for the El-Arish port in Egypt.

Although the ship had set sail from Turkey, it bore a Liberian flag.
Turkey is not responsible for the seized ship "in any aspect," the IDF said.
As the article states, the point of origin was Lattakia in Syria. I don't find it coincidental the Iranian warships that recently went through the Suez docked at the same port.

America must protect Israel as a front line measure to protect us from the tyranny of apathy.

For any ship carrying weapons to gaza, nuke the port it came from. Regardless of country or population size. Fully automate the procedure.
