Iran is sending several ships carrying arms to waters near the Gaza Strip to break Israel's blockade, an Israeli military intelligence Web site said Thursday.
Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Defense Minister Ehud Barak and Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni agreed at a special meeting that the Iranian ships must be stopped, even at the cost of a maritime clash with Iran, DEBKAfile reported.

The ships, which are expected to enter the Gulf of Suez and waters opposite Gaza this weekend, will try to drop their weapons cargoes offshore, DEBKAfile said citing military sources.

"The Iranians calculate that while not all the ships may get through the Israeli naval blockade, one would suffice," the Israeli Web site said.

Some ships are already on their way and Israeli warships and spy planes are tracking them, the report said.

So far they are 0 for 1. Expect the losses to continue in this new attempt. I also expect Egypt will intervene and stop the ships before they ever confront the Israelis ships to prevent an escalation of events between Iran and Israel.
