CCR Senior Staff Attorney Katherine Gallagher said:

"One year after the deadly attack on the humanitarian flotilla, the American public has been told nothing about what actions, if any, the United States undertook to ensure that US citizens and other civilians were protected when they sailed towards Gaza."

"A US citizen was killed and the US has not conducted an independent investigation into his killing in international waters by a foreign military." 

"Indeed, the State Department did not even mention the killing of Furkan Dogan in its recently released Human Rights report on Israel." 

"We need to know what our government is doing to protect us - and hold those to account who harm US citizens."

Co-counsel University of Virginia International Human Rights Law Clinic's Jessica Lee added:

Israel's blockade "cannot be reconciled with principles of international law."

"Regardless of how one determines Israel's legal obligations with respect to Gaza, civilians have the right to receive food and medical supplies."  

"And United States citizens who participate in non-violent humanitarian missions have the right to know what protections they can expect their government to provide in international waters."
