Turkish group announces 2nd ‘freedom flotilla’

Turkish humanitarian aid group IHH’s “Freedom Flotilla Coalition” announces at a press conference in Istanbul moments ago that it would dispatch a second freedom flotilla for the Gaza Strip. The first freedom flotilla, which included the MV Mavi Marmara, attempted to run the blockade on Gaza in May 2010 and was boarded by Israeli commandos. Passengers aboard the ship assaulted the soldiers, who killed ten of their attackers in self-defense.
