Striking government prosecutors have rejected a request by the Turkel Commission, appointed to investigate the May 31 flotilla affair, to allow a prosecutor to continue writing the section of the report describing the factual events leading up to and including the seizure of six vessels trying to break the Israeli naval blockade of the Gaza Strip.

The commission is preparing an interim report on its findings so far and the factual section is an integral part of it.

Commission spokesman Ofer Lefler said he believed the matter would be cleared up and the publication of the report would not be delayed.

Meanwhile, the prosecutors say they are bracing for a strike that could last several months.
