Israel opens flotilla investigation to the public

Thursday, August 26, 2010 |  Israel Today Staff

The Turkel Commission set up by the Israeli government to investigate the Gaza flotilla incident has been opened to public review with the launch of an official website.

The May 31 interception of the humanitarian aid flotilla trying to break the maritime blockade of the Gaza Strip resulted in the deaths of nine violent Turkish activists after they and others aboard the flotilla's largest ship, the Mavi Marmara, attacked and abducted members of the Israeli boarding party.

The internal Israeli investigation is being headed by retired Supreme Court Justice Jacob Turkel, and is being observed by several distinguished international figures, such as Nobel Peace Laureate Lord David Trimble, former First Minister of Northern Ireland.
