After a State Comptroller report released Wednesday criticized the government's decision-making process in its handling of the 2010 raid of the Mavi Marmara, Knesset State Control Committee chairman Uri Ariel (National Union) plans to request a State Comptroller report on the government's handling of the Iranian nuclear threat, Army Radio reported Thursday.

The Knesset’s State Control Committee was meeting Thursday to debate the problems highlighted by State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss’s report on the handling of the Mavi Marmara incident and ensure its lessons are implemented.

Ariel was quoted by Army Radio as saying Thursday that "if we saw here such difficulty in the decision-making process, of course we must check this on threats which are greater and more serious and we will push for a probe of this kind."
