shayetet 13 is the name of the special force unit that raided aid flotilla at night.

Shayetet 13 is an elite Israel Defense Forces naval Special forces unit. The unit is considered one of the three main Israeli Special Forces units (along with Sayeret Matkal - the General Staff Reconnaissance Unit - and Shaldag Unit - the Air Force commando unit).

S'13 is the unit that specializes in sea-to-land incursions, assassinations, counter-terrorism, sabotage, maritime intelligence gathering and maritime hostage rescue. Only a handful of Shayetet 13 missions have been publicized or otherwise missions publicly attributed to the unit.

first lets ask ourselves, what where they expecting to happen when you fly helicopters over people in boat at night? they defiantly didn't want to talk.

this mission failed when the israeli soldiers managed to put themselves in a position where they can be attacked.

it failed because at least 9 people were killed and dozens injured including israeli commandos.

One officer wasnt too happy:

“We boarded the ship and were attacked as if it was a war,” the officer said. “That will mean that we will have to come prepared in the future as if it was a war.”

the problem is that the flotilla was in international waters, and the the israeli raid was considered an act of piracy.

on the other hand you have somali pirates, using less advanced equipment, manage to capture a cargo using fishing boats, hold the crew hostage. they get their hard earned cash. and leave without killing anyone.

Somali Pirates

Israeli Elite Pirates

should the israeli military hire the pirates to deal with the aid ships that will start pouring into gaza?

when things go wrong israel can lie like they always do and claim they had nothing to do with it, and it becomes a conspiracy.
