The Fatah Foreign Relations Commission published the following statement:
At a time when the memory of recent Israeli war crimes against Gaza remainsfresh in our memory, Israeli occupation warships attacked today the “Freedom Fleet", a flotilla of aid boats manned by dozens of international peace activists, parliamentarians, and journalists. Israeli occupation forces assaulted the fleet while the ships were still in international waters, attempting to reach the Gaza shores to deliver desperately needed humanitarian supplies to the population. This aggression has resulted in the killing and injury of dozens of activists aboard these boats. The Fateh Foreign Relations Commission condemns this heinous crime in the strongest possible way.
