Fragments of explosive used on Gaza’s Ark retrieved

While the police investigation continues, the task is to asses the extent of the damage on Gaza's Ark. 

The attack seems to have aimed at destroying the engine of the boat given the location of the explosives. While the engine may have beed affected, the major concern for damage may well be from the saline sea water that flooded the engine while underwater. This remains to be seen when our Palestinian marine engineer is able to examine the engine.

In the meantime, fragments believed to be part of the explosive device have been recovered and are being analysed by the police.
