The IDF is taking legal precautions to protect soldiers and officers who participated in the operation to stop the Mavi Marmara Turkish passenger ship, senior defense officials said on Monday after Turkish news reports claimed intelligence agencies had compiled a list identifying 174 soldiers who could be prosecuted for their involvement in the operation.

The Istanbul Deputy Public Prosecutor Ates Shasan Sozen later told Turkish paper Today's Zaman that the list was compiled by IHH, the organization that organized the Gaza Flotilla and not by Turkish intelligence.

Earlier Monday, the Sabah newspaper wrote that the names were acquired by Turkish intelligence agencies which had studied social connections on Facebook and Twitter, as well as photographs on those websites with ones taken on board the Marmara.
