Israel Attacks & The People Fight Back!

Early this morning, Israeli forces attacked a flotilla of aid-carrying ships aiming to break the blockade on Gaza. According to Aljazeera, at least 19 people were killed and dozens injured when Israeli troops attacked the convoy of ships, dubbed the Freedom Flotilla, in international waters about 75 miles off the Gaza coast.
