Israeli forces have attacked a flotilla of aid-carrying ships attempting to break the country's siege of Gaza.

At least 10 people were killed and dozens injured when troops intercepted the convoy of ships dubbed the Freedom Flotilla early on Monday.

Israeli Army Radio had earlier said that up to 16 people had been killed.

As worldwide condemnation pours in, Inside Story asks if Israel is paying too high a price for enforcing the siege and what the likely ramifications of this incident will be.

Inside Story discusses this with guests: Mustafa Akyol, the deputy editor of the Turkish Daily News, and Yaakov Amidror, an Israeli military analyst.

This episode of Inside Story aired from Monday, May 31, 2010.
