IDF said four additional soldiers were injured from live ammunition and knife stabs the Navy raid on the aid flotilla to Gaza. One was reported in serious condition and three in light to moderate condition.
IDF Spokesman said "the navy raided six ships that sought to violate the naval blockade – and rejected the warning calls and requests to arrive at the Ashdod port and transfer the humanitarian supplies through authorized crossings. During the operation, soldiers faced harsh physical violence from the protesters who attacked them with live ammunition." (Shmulik Grossman)
