Bemanning van de Al Awda in Israel onder huisarrest of overgedragen aan de migratiedienst.

Gesprek met David Heap over de rol die de Flotilla internationaal speelt waar het gaat om solidariteit met de Palestijnen in Gaza.

Zohar Chamberlain Regev bericht dat toen zij door de Israelische marine werden overvallen: ‘People on board were tasered and hit by masked IOF soldiers. We did not get our passports or belongings before we got off the boat. Do not believe reports of peaceful interception.” We urgently need to know the details of who was injured and how seriously, and what treatment they are receiving, if any. A military attack on a civilian vessel is a violent act and a violation of international law. Taking 22 people from international waters to a country which is not their destination constitutes an act of kidnapping, which is also unlawful under the international Convention of the Law of Sea.’
