UN Panel in Jordan Probing Flotilla Raid

The UN investigators have arrived in Jordan to probe Israel’s deadly attack against an international Gaza-bound aid convoy that killed nine Turkish activists.

The investigators interviewed four Jordanian activists who were on board the Mavi Marmara ship that came under attack by Israeli commandos.

The assault in the international waters on May 31 left at least nine Turkish pro-Palestinian activists dead and many others injured.

Alaa Borqan, who is in charge of public relations at the Jordan’s trade unions, said that the UN panel would also meet with the majority of the 33 Jordanians who were on board the ship.

The experts would be in Jordan until September 4, following an eight-day mission to Turkey, according to the statement released by the UN human-rights office.

The UN committee is expected to prepare a report for the UN Human Rights Council at its next session, due to take place from September 13 to October 11.
