Israel's military hierarchy was cleared of significant wrongdoing after an inquiry concluded that the deadly naval raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla six weeks ago was error-free.
The probe, conducted by the Israeli armed forces and led by a retired general, found that there was more to praise than to condemn in the naval operation that claimed the lives of nine Turkish activists on board the flotilla's lead ship, the Mavi Marmara.
In his report, Gen Giora Eiland lauded the "professionalism, bravery and resourcefulness" of the commandos involved in the raid and ruled that the use of live fire was "justified".
"To my relief, the investigation found no negligence of failures on any significant matters," Gen Eiland told reporters after submitting his report."
This is the best bit.
Photographs of a 93-year-old committee member reading documents pertaining to the case while in his pyjamas, his full-time caregiver by his side, appeared in an Israeli newspaper last month.
Israel has rejected calls for an international inquiry into the raid on the Mavi Marmara, a position supported by the United States and Britain after the government of Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, agreed to ease its blockade on Gaza.
