Following up on our report yesterday on the human rights monitoring boat Oliva, we have video today of the boat being attacked by water cannons from an Israeli war ship.
CPS Gaza boat and crew were attacked with water cannons on 13 Jule 2011 at midday. The boat filled with water, as those aboard were hit in the face with powerful blasts of water.
The attack occurred at 2 miles out to sea, well within the 3-mile limit imposed by Israel.
The crew was monitoring human rights violations committed against Gazan fishermen
