(Cyprus, June 1, 2010, 6:30 am) Under darkness of night, Israeli commandoes dropped from a helicopter onto the Turkish passenger ship, Mavi Marmara, and began to shoot the moment their feet hit the deck. They fired directly into the crowd of civilians asleep. According to the live video from the ship, two have been killed, and 31 injured. Al Jazeera has just confirmed the numbers.The Guardian is reporting that This later and larger figure could well be designed to wrong foot the opposition into being accused of exaggeration.
Of course, whether the stormtroopers killed two or ten or more than ten, makes no difference to their sheer criminality and their figure could turn out to be accurate as a projection but always use reports from the racist war criminals of the State of Israel with extreme caution.
UPDATE 14:45 31/05/2010: Israel Army Radio is now reporting that the Israeli army killed 15 people.
