Israeli naval commandos stormed a flotilla of ships carrying aid and hundreds of pro-Palestinian activists to the blockaded Gaza Strip on Monday, killing at least 10 passengers in a predawn raid that set off worldwide condemnation and a diplomatic crisis. Protesters have tried to storm the Israeli consulate in Istanbul over the news that Israeli commandos have stormed Turkish flagged ships.

At least two people have been killed after Israeli forces intercepted a Turkish flagged aid flotilla bound for Gaza.

The Israeli military have responded after they drew international criticism for a deadly interception of an aid convoy bound for Gaza.

The violent end to a Turkish-backed attempt to break Israel’s blockade of the Gaza Strip by six ships carrying some 600 people and 10,000 tonnes of supplies raised an outcry across the Middle East and far beyond.
