Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan gave Israel the impression through third parties that he would keep the Mavi Marmara from setting sail in May 2010, the Prime Minister's Office was quoted as saying in the State Comptroller's report released Wednesday.

"The Prime Minister worked intensively through diplomatic channels, principally with the Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan, to stop the flotilla," the state comptroller's report quoted the PMO as saying. "The efforts led to a high feasibility that the Turkish flotilla would be prevented."
