Forces board Gaza-bound ship from helicopter
Organizers from the Free Gaza Movement and a Turkish human rights group say the convoy, which includes three cargo ships and three passenger boats, is carrying medical supplies as well as cement and other building materials, which Israel has banned from entering Gaza due to security concerns.Israeli media say Israel's navy has attacked a six-ship aid convoy carrying pro-Palestinian activists to the Gaza Strip, killing at least 10 people.
Some information for this report provided by AP, AFP and Reuters.
For the moment, only the news. And a very short comment:
Israel is a sovereign country. Entering its space when the permission denied is provocation. Will it change somehow the situation from the area, eventually leading to the end of the blockade?
A simple question: What Turkey will do if a Kurdish illegal party will win - democratically - the elections?
The Lebanese daily Al-Akhbar, which is close to Hizbullah, stated that "Syria has not closed and will not close any arsenal" to this organization. It also estimated that Hizbullah is interested in missiles that are short-range and easy to use (unlike the Scud missile), such as upgraded Grad missiles. Citing sources close to the organization, the daily added that, in the case of a war against Lebanon, Syria would be more than just a rear base for Hizbullah.
