All of the nine activists killed in Monday's IDF raid on a Gaza-bound flotilla were involved in violence clashes, Deputy Defense Minister Matan Vilna'i said on Wednesday.

Speaking the Knesset, Vilna'i said that the elite Navy commando were "unique in the world."

"While they're friends are being lynched," he said, the Shayetet 13 soldiers were "calling on each other to hold fire."
