The armed attack on humanitarian convoy should be investigated and the incident should find its fair estimate,
Novruz Mammadov, head of foreign relations department of the Presidential Administration of Azerbaijan, said on June 1.
"Freedom Flotilla" consists of six vessels. There were about 600 human rights activists from Europe and Arab countries, including dozens of deputies on the board. The rally was organized by human rights activists from Ireland, Sweden, Greece, Turkey, Algeria and Kuwait. They intended to bring 10,000 tons of humanitarian supplies, including medicines and construction materials to the Gaza Strip.
IDF Naval Forces intercepted six ships attempting to break the naval blockade of the Gaza Strip according to the orders of the political leadership. The ships were not allowed to enter the enclave, and break the naval blockade. According to the world media, about 19 people died during Israeli special operation. Israel confirmed that nine people died.
"We are concerning that the humanitarian convoy was attacked. We condemned the action which caused human loss," Mammadov said.
According to him, the Foreign Ministry of Azerbaijan has already announced its position regarding the incident.
