Is­rael de­nounced for flotilla raid

Los Angeles Times - - 9• 23•10 -

A re­port by three U.N.-ap­pointed hu­man rights ex­perts said Is­raeli forces vi­o­lated in­ter­na­tional law when they raided a Gaza-bound aid flotilla in May, killing nine Turk­ish ac­tivists.

The U.N. Hu­man Rights Coun­cil’s fact-find­ing mis­sion con­cluded that Is­rael’s naval block­ade of the Pales­tinian ter­ri­tory was un­law­ful be­cause of the hu­man­i­tar­ian cri­sis there, and de­scribed the mil­i­tary raid on the flotilla as bru­tal and dis­pro­por­tion­ate.
