Israeli Troops Kill 16 People Onboard Freedom Flotilla
The number is 16 though some say, it is 11. For now. But as I am writing this, things are not well near the Gaza coast where a flotilla of 6 ships carrying aid for the Palestinian territory of Gaza, are approaching.
These people - unarmed civilians -were killed when security forces boarded the boats today.
"At about 4:30 am, Israeli commandos dropped from helicopter onto deck of Turkish ship, immediately opened fire on unarmed civilians," a post on the group's Twitter page said.
