VIDEO | #Estelle Ship to #Gaza | Israelis used “physical violence” against Gaza boat activists

Oct 24, 2012 by

On October 20th Estelle was only 30 nautical miles away from Gaza in international waters, when armed forces attacked the sailing vessel and went on board arresting the entire 30-man crew. Estelle was hauled to the port of Ashdod and the activists were escorted to a detention center in Holon, a coastal suburb of Tel Aviv.

Contrary to several international media that had reported Estelle was boarded by an unarmed Israeli security force, the Greek legation says Estelle was intercepted by a small destroyer escort fleet comprising 5 vessels, 20 zodiac marine inflatables, 2 water canons, military helicopters and more than 300 men of the Israeli special forces.

The activists say the IDF used physical violence upon their arrest, as well as political and ideological intimidation during their detention.
