Shayetet Thirteen's internal investigation into the raid of the Gaza aid flotilla ship the Mavi Marmara has determined that mistakes were made in intelligence as well as in the use of force, reported Israel Radio on Sunday.

According to the report, the scenario in which commandos were faced with an all out mass attack was not prepared for.

It was determined through the investigation that the ship should have been boarded only after gas grenades and high pressure water hoses were first used to subdue those aboard.
