On November 2, Canada's Tahrir and Ireland's Soairse (Freedom) sailed from Fethiye, Turkey. Israel warplanes and naval vessels shadowed them in international waters.

Israeli warships interdicted them violently. Their boats were nearly sunk. Some on board were injured. Twenty-seven participants were arrested, roughed up, detained and imprisoned. All their possessions were stolen.

Some were released and deported. On November 9, a Tahrir press release headlined, "Canadians face two months of incarceration in Israel without trial," saying:

In court, activists tasted Israeli-style justice. They were told: sign voluntary deportation waivers admitting entering Israel lawlessly and agree not to try breaching Gaza's siege again, or face two months in prison uncharged without trial.
