Israel Within International Law in Actions Against Turkish Flotilla
What Israel had actually encountered when boarding were members of the Turkish IHH on board who attacked the Israeli soldiers with guns, knives and metal bars.
The commission said Israeli troops "encountered extreme violence" when they boarded the Turkish-flagged Mavi Marmara, a ferry carrying around 600 people that led the six-ship flotilla.As if Israel can do anything right in the eyes of the world. Repeating myself again, and again (after all, I am the Dept. of Redundancy Dept., right?).
A group of activists from the Turkish Islamist IHH organisation on board the ship "used firearms against the soldiers during the hostilities," the report said, repeating an allegation denied by the activists.
