New Footage Emerges From the Israeli Flotilla Raid

More

Fifteen minutes of previously unseen footage from the Israeli flotilla raid are now viewable online, according to Citizen Tube, an official YouTube blog that promotes videos related to current events.

The two videos (below) were uploaded by Iara Lee, who was aboard the Mavi Marmara which was boarded by soldiers during the raid. Lee is the director of Cultures of Resistance, a network dedicated, according to their site's description, to opposing war and promoting "peace, justice, and sustainability" around the world.

Notable moments in the first video:


0:30 Israeli speedboats are shown running alongside the Mavi Marmara.
3:10 Soldiers can be seen boarding the ship by sliding down ropes from a helicopter.
3:35 Passengers aboard the ship use slingshots against the soldiers.
6:20 Some bloodied passengers can be seen having their injuries treated.

The first half of the second video is mostly of people being treated for injuries, while the second half shows Israeli vessels surrounding the Marmara.

(WARNING: These clips feature some graphic images of injuries.)
