Israeli Arabs ignore summons probing flotilla


Two Israeli Arabs who sailed with a flotilla of ships that attempted to break Israel’s Gaza blockade ignored a subpoena to appear before the Israeli commission probing the incident.

Muhammad Zidan from Kafr Manda and Hamad Abu Dabus from Rahat failed to appear before the Turkel Commission to testify about their voyage on the Mavi Marmara, which was intercepted by Israeli naval commandoes on May 31. Nine Turkish passengers, including a dual Turkish-American citizen, were killed in the operation.

The commission is considering what steps to take against the men, according to a statement from the commission spokesman.
