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:

Israel is denying the claim

Isn't Iran the main supplier of weapons? Not a surprise if Israel did block more missiles and bombs and guns from being brought in.

Really need to find out who's lying here.

According to Iran, Israel stopped the ship denying it entry
According to Israel, the ship never even appeared.

Is this why no ones heard anything for a few days?

Maybe the captain decided to heck with it and chart a course to a vacation spot?

Honestly, this may just end up being an example of incompetence on the Iranians's part since they don't strike me as the most capable in terms of these sorts of things.
