Gaza flotilla docks in Ashdod hours after deadly raid
Israel detains at least 32 activists upon arrival, dozens hospitalized; Turkish-flagged ship stormed by Israel Navy last to arrive at port.

The Turkish-flagged ship carrying international activists bringing humanitarian aid to Gaza docked at the Ashdod port on Monday evening, nearly 16 hours after it was stormed by Israel Navy commandos in what turned into a deadly raid.

The Mavi Marmara was the last of the six-ship flotilla to be towed into the port, and its 600 passengers were kept on board while Israel Police sappers conducted a thorough examination of the vessel.

Nine activists aboard the ship were killed and several more wounded in the clashes that erupted with Israel Navy troops at 4 A.M. on Monday. Eight of the Israeli soldiers were wounded, two of them seriously.

1. Eight of the Israeli soldiers were injured? Were any of them shot?
or is a "seriously" something that required a bandage?

By the way, why would Israel have the right to detain and jail ANYONE from those ships if they do not cooperate with Israeli commands?

I don't think ANY of the people aboard any of those ships intended to go into Israel, so they shouldn't be held at all, they should be free to leave the country NOW!
