(NEWS) Turkel Commission To Hear From Flotilla Passengers

"Two Arab citizens of Israel who attempted to break through to Gaza along with an international flotilla have been summoned to testify before the Turkel Commission. The commission plans to hear from pro-Gaza humanitarian groups as well.

Israeli citizens Mohammed Zidan of Kfar Manda and Hamad Abu-Daabus of Rahat were asked to testify in an open-door hearing to be held on October 13.

The commission has already heard testimony from Khalid Tarzi, the captain of the ship Mavi Marmara, which was part of the flotilla. The Marmara was the boat on which IDF captains were attacked by an angry mob wielding crowbars and knives, leading them to open fire in response, killing nine."
