MK Danny Danon (Likud) sent Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan a cynical letter of apology on Wednesday in which he asked for forgiveness that naval fighters used maximum restraint and killed only nine terrorists on board the Mavi Marmara aid ship, Israel Radio reported.

He said that Israel knew that there were terrorists on board the ship and the instruction was to kill every person that endangered the life of the fighters.

Dannon also asked for forgiveness that Israel did not check the passengers of the ship before it left Turkey and did not prevent them from arming themselves with live ammunition.

Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon also said Wednesday that Israel has no intention of apologizing to the Turkish government over the events of the flotilla which left nine Turkish passengers dead.
