Israeli forces have boarded the Gaza-bound aid ship the MV Rachel Corrie and are taking it to Ashdod port in Israel.

Navy personnel entered the cargo ship from the sea. The operation took only a few minutes, Israeli army spokeswoman Lieutenant Colonel Avital Leibovich said. No one was reported hurt.

“The ship has been boarded and there was full compliance from the crew and passengers on board,” she said.

The move, also confirmed by the Irish department of foreign affairs, came after Israel warned that its troops would enter the vessel unless it changed course to head away from Gaza.

It says it will question those on board at Ashdod, the BBC reported.

The Irish-Malaysian ship the Rachel Corrie is one of the last remaining ships on the flotilla carrying humanitarian aid to Gaza.
