Today they posted a graphic video possibly of the shooting at close range of one of the activists after 2 soldiers have been 'peacefully' pummeling him with their boots. May be the poor activist was in so much pain, and the soldiers' merciful IDF-trained souls could not bear to see him suffer any longer.
Yes, that was it. Mercy killing. I must be grateful to the Israeli forces that they have not send a bill (yet!) to the victim's family charging them for the bullets and labour.
Take a look at this so when idiots make stupid claims about what went on that day, you know what the truth is.
On May 31, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu described the actions of IDF soldiers who had conducted the raid on the Mavi Marmara, killing at least nine of its passengers, as “a clear case of self-defense because as our soldiers were inspecting these ships, they were attacked – they were almost lynched. They were attacked with clubs, with knives, perhaps with live gunfire, and they had to defend themselves – they were going to be killed.”
That was before video emerged appearing to show two Israeli soldiers first pummeling with their boots and then shooting one of the victims as he lay at their feet. To stand above an injured man and then finish him off with rounds from an assault rifle can by no ones estimation be described as an act of self-defense.
