Humanitarian Aid Ships Attacked in International Waters by Israel, With Reports of Dead and Wounded


By davidswanson - Posted on 30 May 2010

Calling such a group "Israeli Defense Forces" makes as much sense as calling the occupiers of Iraq and Afghanistan the "Department of Defense". What the hell are any of these people DEFENDING?

Press TV says two dead. Palestine Note says two dead. World Bulletin says two dead.

Pacific Free Press has a report of possibly three dead. Gaza Freedom March says three dead and 30 wounded. Haaretz has this headline: "Report: Several casualties in clash between Gaza aid flotilla, Israel Navy" but if it related to anything in the article, that part of the article has been censored.

Witness Gaza has Tweets that include:

Report from IHH boat..two killed, 31 wounded. No verification but medical emergency can be seen from ship

Israeli soldiers shooting at people, all over the Turkish boat. Watch IHH streaming video

Israeli soldiers shooting unarmed civilians.
