Eyewitness Journalist Contradicts Turkish Narrative of Mavi Marmara
Şefik Dinc was a Turkish journalist aboard the Mavi Marmara who wrote a book contradicting Turkish claims that the IDF opened fire without provocation.
In an interview with Israeli television (full English transcript from Malam) Dinc, said:
I saw with my own eyes that when the soldiers came on helicopters and started landing on the ship, they did not fire. It wasn’t until the soldiers were met with resistance and realized that some of their friends’ lives were in danger that they began using live ammunition.
