At least two dead and dozens wounded in clashes as the Israeli navy boards the protest flotilla, according to Turkish media. Hundreds of Israelis commandos boarded the ships at once, firing guns and employing gas, according to an Al-Jazeera report.
Prime Minister Haniyeh of Hamas came on Al-Jazeera to condemn the “brutal attack” and call on the UN to intervene on the activists behalf.
Two TV networks are reporting that Israeli warships have clashed with the six ships carrying pro-Palestinian activists and aid for blockaded Gaza, killing at least two and wounding an unknown number of people on board.
The Israeli military refused to comment on the report.
