Feb 5 - The Israeli navy seizes a Gaza-bound ship from Lebanon. Israeli Defence Minister, Ehud Barak confirmed that forces boarded the Lebanese vessel and are escorting it to the Israeli port of Ashdod. This incident comes after the European Union complained to Israel about it not allowing needed supplies into the Hamas-run Gaza strip. Israel had said restrictions would be lifted after the 22 day offensive. Basmah Fahim reports.
