Re: Initiate an Emergency Hotline to Update Families of Injured or Killed passengers of the Free Gaza Flotilla
According to various Israeli and foreign media sources, between 10-20 casualties and approximately 60 injured passengers have been removed from the Free Gaza Flotilla. We appeal to you with an urgent request to establish an emergency hotline that would enable families to inquire about the medical and legal status of loved ones. We ask that contact details be disseminated to Israeli and foreign media channels without delay.
In addition, we ask to be informed of the relevant agency to contact, in order to refer families that have contacted us to the proper source. We would also appreciate the establishment of a mechanism for families from countries with no diplomatic ties to Israel to confirm details of their loved ones.
