Israeli Army Inquiry Says Mistakes Made in Gaza Raid

An Israeli military inquiry blamed faulty planning, intelligence and decision-making by officers for a deadly commando raid on aid ships trying to breach the country’s blockade of the Gaza Strip.

“There were mistakes in various decisions made, including at relatively senior ranks, that ended up in a result we didn’t anticipate,” reserve Major General Giora Eiland said at a press briefing in Tel Aviv. Most of the inquiry’s specific recommendations are classified, said Eiland, who led the probe.
