The Gaza Freedom Flotilla which was completely civilian in nature, was taking 10,000 tons of humanitarian aid to Gaza, on the 31st of May 2010 the flotilla was subjected to an armed attack by "israeli" soldiers in the international waters of the Mediterranean. The "israeli" regime carried out a terrorist attack in international waters against civilians who had come together for peaceful purposes.

As a result of the terrorist attack by the "israeli" regime, 9 of the participants on the Mavi Marmara died, with more than 50 being injured, all the participants of the flotilla were taken into custody, forced into the "israeli" port of Ashdod, arrested and taken to the prison. The participants received physical blows and were subjected to psychological torture. The humanitarian aid and personal belongings of the participants were confiscated.
