Spain Provokes Gibraltar

November 18, 2012  •  From theTrumpet.com
Spain is waving its flag in Gibraltar’s face.
 

Spain has repeatedly tried to claim authority over the waters around Gibraltar, prompting Britain to summon the Spanish ambassador on November 15. In one of the “provocative incursions,” Gibraltar’s police had to rescue a civilian Gibraltarian boat from a Spanish customs vessel.

“These incursions constitute a frontal challenge and an affront to British sovereignty and are intolerable,” said Gibraltar’s government in a statement. “It is clear that the continuing breach of international law has now gone beyond the issue of diplomatic notes.”
