The Truth: Lost at Sea — Israel’s attack on the Freedom Flotilla

This 57-minute film documents the murderous Israeli attack on The Freedom Flotilla, an international effort in 2010 to break Israel’s naval quarantine of Gaza.

The lead vessel of the eight small unarmed ships carrying humanitarian aid to Gaza was attacked in international waters in the darkness of early morning on May 31. Soldiers who rappelled down to the deck from helicopter gunships killed nine men and wounded numerous others. Voices from the Holy Land is sponsoring the streaming.
