Turkish Doctor Describes Treating Israeli Commandos During Raid
New York Times Blog

In an interview with The New York Times, Dr. Hasan Huseyin Uysal, a
Turkish doctor, said that he treated Israeli commandos who were captured
and briefly detained during the initial stages of a raid on a ship
challenging Israel’s naval blockade of Gaza last week.

Dr. Uysal’s account seems to be supported by two photographs that show him
treating one of the three bloodied commandos whom passengers said they
subdued and disarmed at the start of the predawn raid on the main ship in
the flotilla on May 31.



The crimes I saw on the Mavi Marmara
By Free Gaza board member Lubna Masarwa, Electronic Intifada

During the Israeli attack on the Mavi Marmara, deep in international
waters, I was inside the body of the ship. We were unarmed civilians
ranging in age from a one-year-old child to an 88-year-old priest. We were
going to Gaza to break the siege that Israel has imposed on a
million-and-a-half people for the last four years. We were carrying a
cargo of humanitarian and construction aid as well as letters from Turkish
children to the children of Gaza. We were full of hope.
