First Posted: 06/02/10 03:14 PM ET   Updated: 05/25/11 05:40 PM ET

The Israel Gaza attack on Monday, a flotilla raid involving activists delivering aid to Palestinians, led to the death of nine passengers and worldwide condemnation.

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan called the incident a "bloody massacre." President Obama condemned "those acts" that led to the deaths.

But an adviser to Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas says the Israel Gaza ship raid which took place in international waters doesn't necessarily derail attempts for new peace talks, according to the AP.

Watch videos of the dramatic Israel Gaza flotilla raid below.

In footage captured on the Mavi Marmara, activists are seen attacking the soldiers with a stun grenade, a box of plates, and water hoses as the soldiers attempt to board the ship. the activists are also waiving around metal rods and chains later used to attack the soldiers with. The IDF soldiers were armed with paint ball guns (used for riot dispersal) and pistols which they were ordered to use only as a last resort. In the early hours of the 31st of May 2010, IDF soldiers boarded the ships of the "Free Gaza" Flotilla, after the ships refused to redirect their course. Aboard the Mavi Marmara the soldiers encountered serious violence when, in a preplanned attack, the activists on board lynched the soldiers with knives, metal rods and stole two of their guns. As a result 7 soldiers were injured and 9 activists were killed.
