MK Haneen Zoabi (Balad) lauded the findings of a panel of UN human rights experts on Wednesday, which found that Israel had violated international law in enforcing a blockade on Gaza and in the conduct of IDF soldiers during the boarding of the Mavi Marmara.

Zoabi was keen to praise the "professionalism and fairness in [the Human Rights Council's fact finding mission's] efforts to reveal the truth."

She also called on Israel to move forward with the findings of the panel and to indict the Israeli citizens responsible for the Mavi Marmara boarding operation.

"We must not settle for declarations of condemnation but we must work to put the criminals to justice, those who ordered and those who carried out the orders," Zoabi said.

She added, "All attempts of character assassination will not make Israel appear innocent."
