It was a well planned naval commando operation. That is premeditated. Lets all agree, that this operation went quite the wrong way. Without having my post censored, I will add, that there are certain rules regarding rappelling onto a ship by helicopter. These rules are normally used against hostiles. The failure here was lack of Intel, as to whom these passengers represented, in this case certain activists were quite prepared for martyrdom as shown in videos filmed aboard said aid ship and obtained by ZAHAL. One cannot but wonder how many lessons were learn t by the Navy, the loss of life is tragic. The discipline of those commando's probably kept the death toll lower than should be expected in such a scenario. Good day.
