Al Jazeera’s Jamal Elshayyal has been released by Israeli authorities following Monday’s deadly raid on the Mavi Marmara aid ship that was destined for Gaza.
Al Jazeera producer, who reported from the ship as Israel launched the raid, was on the top deck when the ship was attacked.
Here, he tells his account of what happened.
Considering an American was killed in open seas. US government provides military support for Israel and spend our tax dollars in protecting this terrorist regimes interest in the Middle East . Clearly this puts Israeli leaders in the same category as Bin Laden and the IDF in the same category as Al Qaeda.

On the largest ship, the Mavi Marmara, Israeli commandos opened fire on civilian passengers, killing at least 9 passengers and wounding dozens more. Others are still missing. The final death toll is yet to be determined. Cultures of Resistance director Iara Lee was aboard the besieged ship and has since returned home safely.
