Likud Minister Benny Begin said Thursday that while the government clearly erred in its handling of the Mavi Marmara incident, the State Comptroller's report on the incident does not necessarily give any lessons on the operation of the government in general.

Speaking at the Knesset State Control Committee discussion of the report which criticized the government's decision-making process during the 2010 Gaza flotilla, Begin said "of course we made a mistake, but there is no doubt that today, we plan and operate differently."

National Security Council head Yaakov Amidror also addressed the committee, saying that report's criticism of the NSC and its lack of involvement in planning for the flotilla, had already been largely rectified.

Amidror said that their has been "a massive improvement in all connected to the NSC's work, and the NSC is allowed to do more.
