The Gaza Flotilla 2

In 2010, a flotilla led by the Turkish Islamist organization IHH attempted to break Israel’s legal naval blockade of Gaza. Israeli soldiers were viciously attacked while boarding the Mavi Marmara resulting in nine deaths and many injuries.

Israel came under intense pressure diplomatically and in the media.

In 2011, another flotilla attempted to recreate the media storm and inflict more damage on Israel’s image and the legitimate right to defend itself through naval blockades or other means.
