Israeli Navy Rams Relief Boat With McKinney On Board
December 30, 2008 in Peace & Non-Violence
A relief ship carrying medical supplies to Gaza as well as reporters and Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney was intercepted in International Waters by Israeli gunboats early today. One Israeli ship rammed the “Dignity”, a ship owned by the Free Gaza movement sailing under the flag of Gibraltar. The Dignity took damage, and was reportedly being escorted to a port in Lebanon. Apparently no passengers were hurt.
