Italian deputy FM calls Gaza flotilla 'provocation'

Italian Deputy Foreign Minister Alfredo Mantica called the international flotilla to the Gaza Strip a "provocation". However, he did not justify the Israeli course of action.


"The manner of the response is debatable, but to think that it would all pass without Israeli action is naiveté on the part of the organizers. I believe someone wanted to see how harsh Israel's response would be," he said. (AFP)
