Abstract
Israel and Palestine are two countries involved in protracted and restless conflicts. In 2010,
the pro-Palestinian movement named Gaza Freedom Flotilla Organization was going to
send humanitarian aid to Gaza by the sea. Amid the trip, one of the ships in the Gaza
humanitarian aid group Freedom Flotilla named Mavi Marmara was attacked by Israel
Defense Forces. The purpose of this study is to explain the reason of Israeli attack on Mavi
Marmara aid ship. The research question will be analyzed by theory of securitization to
explain the reason of why Israel attacked the humanitarian aid ship Mavi Marmara. Trough
the securitization theory, it will be explained on how a state responses a nonpolitical issue
and alters it into a political issue that requires an effective policy. This research uses
explanatory method to understand the reason behind the attack on Mavi Marmara. The
discussion in this study is based on Israel’s point of view. The result of this research is that
the attack on the Mavi Marmara aid ship was a defense strategy by the Israeli Government
in order to tackle the possible threats to dismiss Israeli’s Blockade to Gaza as part of it’s
protection policy.
