The Prime Minster's Office and the defense establishment are currently weighing the option of whether or not to institute a National Commission of Inquiry which would investigate this week's IDF flotilla raid, Army Radio reported Thursday.

The US suggested that Israel establish an inquiry team which would be lead by an internationally recognized judge, and which would also host an American representative.

IDF sources said Thursday morning that it is important to differentiate between an internal investigation and establishing a National Commission of Inquiry. "An intermediate situation is not ideal, and will likely lead to conflicting results," the IDF sources said.

A final decision will likely be delivered in the next few days.
