Azerbaijan, Baku, June 1 / Trend M. Aliyev /
The Caucasian Muslims Office made a statement in connection with the violence of volunteers by Israeli military men.
The Caucasian Muslims Office calls on Israel to take appropriate actions in relation to Israeli military men's violence against volunteers from "Freedom Flotilla", punish perpetrators and open the way for humanitarian aid to the inhabitants of Gaza, a statement said.
"Freedom Flotilla" consists of six vessels. There were about 600 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.
"The attitude towards volunteers who deliver humanitarian aid to people in the Gaza strip angered Muslims of the Caucasus. It is inconsistent with the international law," the statement said.
"The attempt to kill people coming to help those blockaded and isolated from the world, is unacceptable and contrary to humanity," a statement said.
The Caucasian Muslims Office grieves over the loss, expresses condolences to their families and friends, wishes the injured a speedy recovery.
