      Response to murderous Israeli attack must be firm and resolute - Adams

      Speaking this morning about the attack by Israeli military forces on the
      Gaza Freedom Flotilla in which a number of people have been killed, Sinn
      Féin President Gerry Adams said:

      "People across the world have been shocked and horrified by the reports
      this morning of the killings of up to 20 civilians taking part in the Gaza
      Freedom Flotilla, when Israeli commandos stormed a Turkish ship.
      "People in Ireland are extremely concerned for the safety of the eight
      Irish nationals on board the flotilla.
      "The Gaza Freedom Flotilla was a humanitarian aid mission carrying 10,000
      tonnes of aid to the besieged city of Gaza. The blockade of Gaza is
      illegal under International law. The flotilla organisers had repeatedly
      declared their peaceful intent.

      "This murderous attack took place in international waters, in breach of
      international law.
      "The response of the international community must be firm and resolute.
      "Israeli policy towards the Palestinian people must change.
      "This Israeli action must be condemned by all governments and political
      leaders who believe in democracy, peace, security and the standing of
      international law.
      "My thoughts are with the families of those who died in this outrageous
      attack."ENDS
