GAZilla ‘peace’ activists are seen attacking Israeli soldiers with stun grenades, a box of plates, and water hoses as the soldiers attempt to board the ship.
The IDF soldiers were armed with paint ball guns (used for riot dispersal) and pistols which they were ordered to use only as a last resort. In the early hours of the 31st of May 2010, IDF soldiers boarded the ships of the “Free Gaza” Flotilla, after the ships refused to redirect their course. Aboard the Mavi Marmara the soldiers encountered serious violence when, in a preplanned attack, the activists on board lynched the soldiers with knives, metal rods and stole two of their guns.
Radio exchange between IDF ship and commandos on their way to the bridge to redirect the Mavi Marmara. Soldiers report live fire and serious violence coming from the ‘peace’ activists.
