The Illegality of Israel’s Blockade of Gaza and Attacks on the Free Gaza Flotilla

Print Friendly and PDF

In the pre-dawn hours of May 31, 2010, a six-boat flotilla carrying more than 700 civilians from almost 40 countries was overtaken by Israeli commandos in international waters. Israeli commandos attacked the largest ship in the flotilla, the passenger ferry Mavi Marmara, leaving one U.S. citizen and eight Turkish citizens dead and scores of people wounded. After being boarded, the ships were forcefully rerouted to the Israeli port of Ashdod, where the majority of the passengers were detained without charge and had their property, including video evidence of the attack, confiscated before being deported from Israel.

See CCR's factsheet on the illegality of this attack and of the blockade on Gaza.
