    I have read the article three times now and nowhere does it say that anybody was firing from the helicopter we even have video evidence of that one. it says nothing about 5 people being shot in the back of the head or an American being shot dead whilst laying on the deck. Are these all figments of your imagination or do you have some actualy evidence based on a reliable source? People were shot when the commandos lost control of the situation because they were attacked by a mob with knives and metal bars. One person even stole the gun belonging to one of the commandos. What happened on the Mavi Mara was unfortunate but the planners of the operation did their best to avoid casualties which is why the men were armed with paintball guns. As for the legality of boarding the ship in international waters that was also LLEGAL under the Halsinki Principles which allow for the boarding of ships in international waters if they are known to be intending to breach a legal blockade which this was. We know that their intention was to breach the blockade because they had been saying that from before they left right up to when they were order to divert to Israel for their cargo to be inspected. Turkey is already no friend of Israel and sabotaging ships without admitting responsibility means they can suspect only and it also means the world will never see images of these ships sailing off to Gaza and it also means there is no risk of anybody getting hurt soldiers or passengers.
