Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu vowed on Sunday that Israel will not apologize to Turkey over the events of the Mavi Marmara raid, in light of the recommendations put forward by the Palmer report on the incident. "We don't need to apologize for our soldiers who protected themselves against violent attacks by IHH activists and we don't need to apologize for working to stop weapons being smuggled to the terror group Hamas," he said at the beginning of the weekly cabinet meeting.

"Israel expresses regret that lives were lost, and I hope that we will find a way to improve relations with Turkey," Netanyahu added.
