A Turkish newspaper has published a list of names of Israelis, who it alleges are IDF soldiers that participated in the 2010 Mavi Marmara raid that left nine Turkish nationals dead.

Turkish daily Sabah, wrote that that the names were acquired by Turkish intelligence officials by analyzing social connections on Facebook and Twitter, as well as comparing photographs on those websites with ones taken on board the Marmara.

The list of 174 names was transferred to Turkish prosecutors, in addition to pictures of ten IDF soldiers the paper said Turkish intelligence agencies could not identify. Included on the list were not only those IDF soldiers who participated in the operation to stop the Gaza Flotilla, but also senior IDF officials.
