BRITAIN has joined global calls for an inquiry into Israel’s deadly assault on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla which killed at least nine people.
Prime Minister David Cameron insisted Britain remains committed to Israel’s security, but called for a “constructive” response to “legitimate criticism” of its actions.
The Foreign Office confirmed one Briton was injured and had received medical treatment.
Israel insists its forces retaliated against an attack by people on board armed with weapons including knives and guns, but activists said the commandos were shooting as they boarded.
Demonstrators gathered outside the St Nicholas Centre in Aberdeen in protest over Israel’s attack on the convoy.
More than 50 people handed out leaflets and chanted in support of the Palestinians.
Reports suggested several Scots were part of the flotilla.
Edinburgh woman Theresa McDermott, 43, was believed to be on board one of the ships.
Ms McDermott founded Free Gaza Scotland last year along with Carl Abernethy, 49.
Campaigners in the organisation had collected items to be sent to Gaza, such as medical supplies and crutches, as well as sports equipment, crayons and paint for children.
Dundee man Ali El-Awaisi, 21, has been out of contact and his brother Khalid, 30, said the whole family were fearing for his safety.
And a Glasgow man also told of his anxious wait to hear from his son, a 25-year-old journalist on the flotilla.
