IDF to blame navy in scathing report on Gaza flotilla raid
An Israeli military report to be released Monday on the Israel Navy’s deadly May raid on a Gaza-bound flotilla is expected to accuse the navy of failing to sufficiently consider the possibility that the commandos would encounter violent resistance when attempting to keep the ships out of Gaza.
The report is also expected to criticize the navy for not cooperating sufficiently with the Mossad in gathering information ahead of the flotilla’s arrival and to discuss the process by which the raid was approved. It is not, however, expected to call for disciplinary action against particular officers.
The lefty blogosphere is crowing that this somehow vindicates the Peace Activists….
Israeli Military’s Mavi Marmara Report Blames the Navy
However it seems that the report is correctly blaming the Navy for not properly preparing for violence from the Peace Activists.
