Four of the wounded flotilla activists were evacuated to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem, all of them in moderate condition, Hadassah Spokeswoman Yael Bossem-Levy, told the Jerusalem Post.

She added that all four appeared to be Turkish nationals, although it was unclear if one was in fact a Palestinian.

Two of the wounded were treated in the hospital's emergency trauma unit and the other two underwent surgery, although Bossem-Levy said she was unable to disclose the details of their injuries.

Inside the emergency room, a handful of Military Police officers stood guard over two of the wounded activists, one of whom could be seen lying on a bed and sleeping in a hospital gown, his foot bandaged.
