MK Hanin Zoabi (Balad) harshly criticized State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss's report on the government's handling of the 2010 Mavi Marmara flotilla incident on Wednesday, saying Lindenstrauss cooperated with the defense establishment in suppressing the facts.

"Instead of investigating the nature of the pirate operation, of the murder of activists and the attack on a civilian ship, the State Comptroller is cooperating with the Israeli security establishment in suppressing the facts," said Zoabi, who herself was a passenger on the Mavi Marmara.

Zoabi attacked the investigation, saying she hoped Lindenstrauss would have examined the documentation created by the IDF and videos shot by activists, which was later seized by the army.
