The ships will likely be trying to stay as close as possible to the 20km line, with Israel watching them the whole time. Someone else brought up the topic of ELINT as being part of the mission (would the Iranians be smart enough to even consider it?), so Israel needs to fight the temptation to “paint” the ships with targeting radars.

Read their Koran - they are serious about your being killed, enslaved, or your “submitting” to Islam.
Those who hold that Islam is its own death warrant agree with St. Ann, who said invade, convert, or kill them.
Saint Ann sounds like Satan
