The IDF delayed the release of footage from the Navy's takeover of the Mavi Marmara Turkish passenger ship due to concern that images of commandos being beaten by the would damage the elite unit's reputation, State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss revealed Wednesday in his report on the 2010 flotilla.

The comptroller's conclusion is basically a rejection of the IDF's claim that a helicopter - allocated to bring the video footage from the sea - was diverted to evacuate wounded instead and therefore the release of the video was delayed.
