Israeli Navy Attacks Illegal Leftist Flotilla Heading to Gaza – 2 Reportedly Killed (Video)
The Israeli navy attacked at least one of six ships heading to Gaza today. There were reports of injuries and deaths.
Aljazeera posted video:
This will likely be a media disaster for Israel.
FOX News reported:
Israeli warships attacked at least one of six ships carrying pro-Palestinian activists and aid for the blockaded Gaza Strip, killing at least two and wounding an unknown number of people on board, an Arabic satellite news channel and a Turkish TV network reported early Monday.
The Israeli military spokesman’s office denied that its forces attacked the boats but said they would enforce the decision to keep them away from Gaza.
However, other security officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to report on the military operation, confirmed that activists were wounded, but did not give numbers.
They said the troops faced resistance and that soldiers were under orders only to use fire if their lives were in danger.
The al-Jazeera satellite channel reported by telephone from the Turkish ship leading the flotilla that Israeli navy forces fired at the ship and boarded it, wounding the captain. The Turkish NTV network also reported an Israeli takeover with gunfire, and that at least two people were killed.
