Four Belgian citizens who were on board the Freedom Flotilla to Gaza when it was attacked by Israeli forces on May 31, 2010 are planning to sue the Israeli government.
The four, Fatima el-Mourabiti, Inge Neefs, Kenza Isnasni and Griet Deknopper, were victims of, and witnesses to, the attack and have applied to the Belgian courts to hear their complaint.
They were kidnapped by Israeli forces in international waters and held for 28 hours on the boats and claim they were ill-treated before being imprisoned is Israel prior to deportation,
They told Belgian journalists that, “It is essential that all the persons responsible for the attack, in which nine people were killed and 50 others injured, are judged by the appropriate courts for justice to be done.”
