"We had cameras and mobile phones taken off during the first process on the ship when they were moving us out of the salons and they took anything that was on you in terms of technology," Alex Philips, a Gaza flotilla survivor, told Press TV.
It is estimated that 600 mobile phones, 400 video cameras and 350 laptops still remain in the hands of the Israeli military.
Most of the passengers were also carrying large amounts of cash on them from months of fundraising. The money was intended for charities in the Gaza Strip.
"Over 3,500 [dollars] of my cash and my drivers' license [was taken]. They took my card which was my permit to work in Saudi Arabia as a teacher. They took my laptop … they also took many items of clothing," Bllat Abdul Aziz, another survivor, told Press TV.
