AJE report:

‘Very critical’

Nine were killed when Israeli commandos raided the Mavi Marmara

Israel’s Haaretz newspaper reported on Monday that “witnesses and various other people who have spoken to Eiland say that his report will be very critical of the army’s conduct in the affair”.

The daily said the navy is to be “the main target of Eiland’s critique of the operation, although his assessment will apparently be tempered by consideration for the navy’s success in several operations in recent years under Major-General Eliezer Marom”.

The Israeli media reports said that the military commission’s report pointed to “flaws” in the preparations for the raid.

The Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper said that their were problems with the “battle guidelines” issued to commandoes and the intelligence gathered prior to the military boarding the Mavi Marmara.

The Jerusalem Post said that the report focused “on the relationship between the military and political echelons as well as the apparent intelligence failure, under which the navy commandos boarded the ship without knowing that a group of passengers, apparently mercenaries, had laid an ambush”.
