The government approved Sunday increasing the authority of The Terkel Committee, which was appointed to investigate the circumstances of the IDF's interception of the Mavi Marmara and five other boats heading for Gaza.

The committee will now be able to invite witnesses who will testify on an oath.

Army operations will still only be checked by an army inquiry and not within any other framework.
