Yildrim did not specify whether his jihadist comrades would "throw the commandos to the see" on international or territorial waters. He said that they would just do it. In connection with the fact that they could have passed the aid via Ashdod, the last thing to describe this "flotilla" is humanitarian activists. As the turkish chief officer from Mavi Marmara stated already, IHH took over control of this ship from the very start, and prepared for battle many hours before the commando's raid - a good reason to think about their intentions. Btw. also the Palestinian witness interviewed by Spiegel confirms that soldiers were lynched and one Arab woman even tried to prevent from lynching.
