Turkey over the past few days has submitted a letter to Israeli judicial authorities demanding the identities of the IDF soldiers involved in the Mavi Marmara ship raid which left nine Turks dead, Turkish paper Zaman reported Friday.

In a two-page letter the Istanbul Public Prosecutor's Office sent the request as part of an ongoing court case investigating the May 31 flotilla raid, the report said.

The letter demanded the names and contact details of IDF soldiers and officers who were involved in the raid. The letter also demanded that an official copy of information and documents related to the incident be sent, according to Zaman.
