Israeli commando Yashmak Topol was today rushed to hospital in Tel Aviv with a suspected sprained ankle when a goodwill visit to a flotilla of aid ships in international waters went disastrously pear shaped.
It's thought that the Israeli commandos abseiled down onto the ship with the intention of promoting international goodwill, but in a fleetingly horrific moment, the ships crew fearing that they were being attacked by pirates got a bit stroppy with the intruders. At one point, threatening to hit them with sticks.
Following some initial confusion, during which nine people were shot dead by the commandos, and several others were injured, following an appeal by the ship's Captain, everybody realised that the entire episode was a silly mix up.
Israel later apologised for shooting people illegally and all parties agreed to just forget all about it. The ship was escorted into the Israeli port of Ashod, and any survivors were given big hugs and complimentary El-Al air tickets home.
Nobody reported any hard feelings over the incident.
British Foreign Secretary, William Hague (12) assured Britons that the British coalition government is doing everything in its power to fudge the issue.
Yashmak Topol said that his sprained ankle was "hurting a bit" but was optimistic that he'd be playing badminton again by Thursday.
PM David Cameron said, "Let me make this perfectly clear," and promptly shut up again.
The Knessett announced that Israel had no fixed strategy concerning a ground war with Iran, but confirmed that they were "kind of toying with the idea."
More as we get it.
