News on UN Probe of Israeli Attack on Mavi Marmara

UN experts end Jordan probe of Israeli flotilla raid

Zoabi, who was aboard the Mavi Marmara, told the inquiry on Tuesday the Israeli commandos had a “licence to kill.” “I told the UN investigators in Amman that the Israeli attack was violent from the start and that the Israelis had a clear licence to kill, and they did not even try to avoid the bloodshed,” the Israeli MP told AFP.

“I sensed that the investigators were serious about the probe. They asked clear questions and I gave them clear answers. I stressed that the Israeli commandos wanted to kill the activists, who were unarmed,”” she added.

Investigating the Freedom Flotilla Attack

On June 2, the UN Human Rights Council (HRC) approved formation of an international committee (like the Goldstone Commission) to probe the Flotilla attack, saying it will include lawyers and international law and human rights experts, its findings to be presented in September (during the Council’s three week session in Geneva) after visiting Gaza and contacting Israel, Turkey, Greece, and the Freedom Flotilla coalition.
