JERUSALEM — Turkey's prime minister is dismissing an Israeli inquiry's findings defending the actions of Israeli troops in the deadly interception of a Turkish-led protest flotilla to Gaza last year.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan told reporters in Ankara on Sunday that the Israeli report had "no value or credibility."

The Israeli inquiry found that the actions of troops who met violent resistance aboard one ship were legal under international law.
