Both government and public alike awoke to horrendous news coming out of Gaza, being under vicious attack during early morning hours by the IDF on the convoy of ships carrying international activities to break the siege on Gaza. A total of 16 civilians were killed, mostly Turks, while Sheikh Raed Salah, head of the Islamic Movement in Palestine and Dr Hani Suleiman, head of the Lebanese delegation, were seriously wounded in the attack.
Syrian public opinion is likely to explode. This morning the People’s Assembly (parliament) went into urgent session to discuss the onslaught. Meanwhile Syria’s ambassador to the Arab League called for a urgent session, which has been set for Monday, June 1. Massive demonstrations will likely break out in major cities throughout Syria.
