Gaza aid flotilla attacked, two killed

Zionist Israeli forces have attacked the international aid convoy Freedom Flotilla en route to the besieged Gaza Strip, killing at least two people and leaving more than 50 injured.

The attack came on Monday morning after Israel deployed warships and threatened to stop the flotilla from reaching Gaza.

There were not immediately more details about the raid or the casualties.

The convoy carries 10,000 tons of supplies and hundreds of politicians, activists and journalists.

The flotilla seeks to break Israel’s crippling blockade of Gaza and deliver basic necessities to the impoverished Palestinians in the coastal enclave.
