Turkel C’tee: Marmara raid was in accordance with int’l law

The Jerusalem Post
According to the concluding remarks of the committee members and international observers,

    “The naval blockade imposed on the Gaza Strip – in view of the security circumstances and Israel’s efforts to comply with its humanitarian obligations – was legal pursuant to the rules of international law. The actions carried out by Israel on May 31, 2010, to enforce the naval blockade had the regrettable consequences of the loss of human life and physical injuries. Nonetheless, and despite the limited number of uses of force for which we could not reach a conclusion, the actions taken were found to be legal pursuant to the rules of international law.”

  1. It’s good that at least the Israelis are now agreed about the episode. A good followup would be for Israel to demand an apology from Turkey for the actions of its citizens.
