IDF’s Flotilla Incident Timeline Videos


This is an absolutely riveting film, and breaks down the events of the (Mavi Marmara) flotilla incident, of May 31, using a timeline that alternates between 3D models and footage captured throughout the incident.  The events leading up to and throughout the flotilla incident are recounted in the video, as presented by the team of experts led by Maj. Gen. (Res.) Giora Eiland in the IDF’s internal inquiry.  Of note, the orders given to the IDF soldiers boarding the flotilla ships, including the policy of using gradual force, and using live weapons only in life threatening scenarios.

  1. i have two probs with the videos….one, that there are no vids from the other ships

    two, that they continue to use the edited audio from the ship to ship transmissions

  2. A magnificent operation by the Israelis. The professionalism and bravery of these guys is awe-inspiring, and Israel should be immensely proud of them.

    The “peace activists” who thought they could tell Jews to “Go back to Auschwitz” started a fight, but found they were up against a different type of Jew this time. One that fights back.

  3. Are versions of this in English.

    I hardly think that many Israelis have any doubts as to the intentions of these ‘peace activists’.

    OK. I suppose because not real violence was encountered on them.

    Why would vids from the other boats be of any importance?

  5. JerusalemMite, for triangulation of the evidence in the Israeli videos. We know that the IDF has been accused to photoshopping or otherwise tampering with them. Such triangulation is also applicable to all sorts of video evidence.

    Having said that, the evidence in the IDF videos is unmistakable, but even more so is that from the Mavi Marmara’s own CCTV cameras which shows the Islamist thugs tooling up and strutting about intent on harm.

  6. I echo Jerusalem Mite’s question of whether there are any versions in different languages. Hebrew speakers are the people in the world who are least in need of this information (though of course they should see it too!)

    I also would say that this is too little far too late. But that said, it is a wonderful video and will still be of enormous use to the world. It just could have been so much better.

    Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

  7. Why not just admit that the IDF botched the mission? It happens to armies across the world – and contrary to what Israel haters claim there’s no evidence of some dastardly, premediated plan to simply kill those on board.

    You’re trying too hard.

  8. No doubt this evidence will be submitted to the UNHRC enquiry and merged with that from other sources.

    Amongst this should be the intercepts gathered by the UK’s monitoring station on Cyprus .

  9. Allegra, please quote where the IDF admitted to FABRICATION.
    When you make accusations like this you need to be very precise about sources and links or be suspected of ill-will and deliberate untruths.

    The link you gave was to a Guardian article critical of a video by Caroline Glick called We Con the World and had nothing to do with the tape of the warning to the Marmara.
