Two days ago, Israeli forces attacked a humanitarian aid flotilla in international waters. The whole purpose of the activists on the raided Turkish ship, the Mavi Marmara, and several others around it, were to bring aid and supplies, including playgrounds for children, to Gaza. They paid the price by being the targets of Israeli machine guns.
At least 10 unarmed civilians, most of whom are Turks, were killed. Dozens of others were injured.
There is no need to mince words in the face of this atrocity: Israel has committed piracy, barbarism and state terrorism.
