Jerusalem-based research institute "NGO Monitor" called the UN Human Rights Council's report on the May 31 flotilla, "based on secret and unverifiable allegations," "highly biased," and "no more that hearsay," in a press release on Wednesday.

NGO Monitor president Professor Gerald Steinberg criticized the UNHRC report for refusing to disclose the names of NGOs and witnesses it based its testimonies on. Stienberg said that the "latest 'report' indicting Israel has no legitimacy if the sources of the allegations and narrative are hidden."
