ISLAMABAD - A United Nations appointed panel said in a report that Israeli forces violated international law and human rights law, during their attack on a flotilla of ships attempting to break the blockade of Gaza in May. The UN Human Rights Councils fact-finding mission judged Israels naval blockade of the Palestinian territory to be unlawful because there was a humanitarian crisis in Gaza at the time. According to UN report, Israels military is responsible to the flotilla as disproportionate and said it exhibited highest level of brutality. Eight Turkish activists and one Turkish-American were killed in the raid, which caused international criticism of both the attack and Israels policy of blockading the Gaza Strip. The report criticised the Israeli government for this brutal act. The report said the conduct of the Israeli military and other personnel towards the flotilla passengers was not only disproportionate to the occasion but demonstrated levels of totally unnecessary and incredible violence.
