According to Irans Red Crescent, the Aid ship was denied entry to Gaza by the IDF Navy
Earlier Tuesday, Iran's Red Crescent Director Ahmed Musawi said that "the Zionist regime's Navy prevented the organization's vessel from
reaching Gaza." The comments were reported by Iranian news agency Maher. The report did not provide any further details aside from noting that the
ship's request to enter Gaza's territorial waters was rejected.
Musawi said the Navy stopped the Iranian vessel about 20 miles away from Gaza, while according to international conventions a naval blockade may only
be imposed 12 miles away from shore.
There's a few websites coming up with the claim, but all of them are timing out at the moment.
Perhaps someone else can open them:
