Today’s conclusion of the investigation regarding the violence on the Flotilla to Gaza, reveals “Flawed Intelligence” on Israel’s part, but the reaction by the IDF was fully justified.
Had the intelligence been better, the violent confrontation could have possibly been avoided.
In a perfect world, had they known who was on the 6th ship, the one filled with terrorists, …. the one smuggling in the weapons, the Israeli Navy could have fired a shot damaging the navagation of the ship and allowed neutral forces to board and search the ship after towing it into the Israeli port of Ashdod, where (under U.N. supervision) they would have found the hidden rockets and mortor rounds.
IDF soldiers were severely wounded in the attack and 9 Turkish terrorists – (wannabe martyrs) were killed.
