Dogan, 19, was shot at close range, with four bullets to his head and one to his chest, according to a forensic report obtained by the Turkish Anatolian news agency.
Despite Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanhayu’s outrageous claim that all the passengers on aboard the ships were radicals with ties to terrorist organizations, Dogan was a high school student studying social sciences in the town of Kayseri in Turkey. He was born in the United States and moved to Turkey at the age of 2.
Also among the “radicals with ties to terrorist organizations” was former Ambassador Edward Peck, 81, a career diplomat who served as deputy director of the White House Task Force on Terrorism during Ronald Reagan’s presidency.
