International media reported that Israeli Naval commandos stormed the Mavi Marmara (left) killing at least 16 activists.
The Israeli government had vowed to prevent the convoy, a "Freedom Flotilla" of six ships carrying 10,000 tonnes of humanitarian aid, from reaching Gaza's shores.
Twelve Malaysians, including two members of the media, are confirmed on board the Mavi Marmara, the lead vessel of a pro-Palestine flotilla that was attacked by Israeli forces today.
The attack must be condemned by the international community. If the attack on South Korean ship is risking economic sanction on North Korea by some of the most powerful nations, I hope they will react the same towards Isreal and its cowardice attack.
This is a black day when a humanitarian initiative is being attacked and suppressed.
