Ahead of planned Gaza-bound flotilla, US urged its citizens to refrain from traveling to Gaza strip by sea. The United States updated a travel warning urging Americans to refrain from traveling to the Gaza Strip by sea and emphasizing risks, including a possible 10-year travel ban to "Israel".
The new State Department travel warning for "Israel", the West Bank and Gaza, said Americans could face arrest, prosecution, and deportation by "Israel". "The Government of "Israel" has announced its intention to seek 10-year travel bans to "Israel" for anyone participating in an attempt to enter Gaza by sea," US statement warned.
Meanwhile, the Zionist Entity said on Wednesday it has warned the United Nations a new aid flotilla intending to challenge "Israel's" blockade of the Gaza Strip could result in "dangerous consequences."
"Israel calls on all nations to do all in their power to prevent the ... flotilla from occurring - and to effectively caution their citizens about the risks associated with participating in such harmful provocations," "Israel's" ambassador to the United Nations Ron Prosor said.
