Israelis were largely indifferent to a military probe of a deadly raid that killed nine activists. As one observer put it: “Here, more people are focused on the World Cup results.”
Israel has come under intense pressure to end its blockade of Gaza. Need to Know takes a look at the blockade and its impact on the Palestinian people.
One of the nine activists killed in an Israeli raid on a flotilla of ships headed for Gaza this week was a dual citizen of Turkey and the United States.
Pro-Palestinian activists confirmed to Need to Know on Monday that they would send another boat to challenge the Israeli blockade of Gaza, after a deadly raid on the first flotilla sparked worldwide condemnation.
