(NEWS) Ashkenazi: 'Marmara' Passengers Fired First

"Passengers aboard the Gaza-bound ship Mavi Marmara were the first to open fire in a battle with IDF commandos, IDF Chief of Staff Gabi Ashkenazi said Sunday. Ashkenazi testified for a second time before the Turkel commission, which is investigating the fatal clash aboard the Marmara.

Clear proof that the passengers aboard the Marmara were armed and dangerous can be seen in the fact that the second IDF commando to board the ship was shot, he told members of the commission. The first soldier on board had not been carrying a gun, meaning the bullet could only have come from a gun carried by a passenger."
