Israel army not sure who gave order to fire

Israeli army spokesman General Avi Benayahu said he did not know who ordered a naval commando to open fire after they boarded Gaza-bound aid ships where they killed at least 10 people.

"I don't know who gave the order to shoot, it is too early to determine," he told army radio. "The navy acts in accordance with orders and the rules for opening fire are very clear. The soldiers had been warned not to give in to provocations."

"The navy had developed models to prepare this operation, but sometimes life is more complicated than the models. We were prepared for a police mission to confront violence…" Benayahu said.

Israeli security forces were put on high alert to handle any on high "possible disturbances" among the country's Arab Israeli population in the wake of the naval raid, a police spokesman said.

Israel's Army Radio said the clashes broke out after the passengers allegedly tried to grab weapons off the naval commandos who tried to storm one of the boats.

Israel radio said at least one vessel was boarded by Israeli troops backed with helicopters. An unnamed Arab journalist traveling with the flotilla reported that shooting was taking place. Hamas-run TV showed pictures of the wounded.

Gaza's Al Aqsa television also showed footage of black-clad Israeli commandos descending from helicopters and clashing with activists.

Israeli TV 10 reported that Israeli marine commandos opened fire after being attacked with axes and knives by a number of the passengers on board the aid ships.

The head of the Hamas, Esmail Haniya, condemned the "brutal" Israeli attack, adding: "We call on the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon, to shoulder his responsibilities to protect the safety of the solidarity groups who were on board these ships and to secure their way to Gaza."

Israeli claims 'complete lies'

Responding to Israeli statements blaming the violence on organisers of the flotilla, a Turkish government official told Al Jazeera TV that the Turkish government had checked the aid ships sailing to Gaza prior to departure and they did not carry any weapons or live ammunition. He said Israeli claims that their forces were retaliating to live fire were "complete lies".

Israeli defence minister Ehud Barak earlier claimed that the aid flotilla was a "political provocation" by anti-Israel forces, while Israel's military chief, Lt. Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi, said soldiers were forced by violent activists to respond with live fire.

According to Israel's private channel 10 television, Israeli marine commandos opened fire after being attacked with axes and knives by a number of the passengers on board the aid ships, the television said, without giving the source of its information.
