Israel's navy boarded a ship carrying aid to Gaza without incident on Saturday, five days after killing nine people on a Turkish aid ship to enforce what Washington calls an unsustainable blockade.
The navy, whose actions on Monday triggered an international outcry, took control of the Rachel Corrie and sailed it to Ashdod, where it docked, the Israeli military said.
The Irish-owned cargo vessel had ignored the navy's orders to divert and allow its cargo to be unloaded and inspected before delivery to Gaza.
Interior Ministry spokeswoman Sabine Haddad said all 19 passengers and crew had signed deportation papers and most would leave the country on various flights on Sunday.
"The process went very smoothly and they will be flying out through Ben-Gurion Airport during tomorrow," Haddad said.
She added that six Malaysian citizens and one Cuban would leave the country via the Allenby Bridge land crossing to Jordan. [...]
Hang them all. They are all terrorists. Especially the Cuban.
