HAIFA, Israel – Two TV networks are reporting that Israeli warships have attacked the six ships carrying pro-Palestinian activists and aid for blockaded Gaza, killing at least two and wounding an unknown number of people on board.
The Israeli military refused to comment on the report.
Israeli warships stalked a flotilla carrying hundreds of pro-Palestinian activists, including a Nobel laureate and a Holocaust survivor heading for the Gaza Strip on Monday, edging closer to a naval showdown on the high seas.
CNN Int: Ben Wedeman: "It's a little hard to explain why it would be necessary to use this sort of violent measure"

No news source as of yet, hopefully this won't turn into a war by tomorrow.

Can't wait to see the Israeli apologists and propagandist show up here. I wonder what their excuses will be this time?
Israel said the boats were embarking on "an act of provocation" against the Israeli military, rather than providing aid, and that it had issued warrants to prohibit their entrance to Gaza.
