Amnesty International condemned on Friday the findings of the Turkel Commission's investigation into the Mavi Marmara Gaza flotilla incident as a "whitewash" which failed to account for the deaths on nine Turkish nationals.

According a statement released by the organization, "despite being nearly 300 pages long, the report crucially fails to explain how the activists died and what conclusions the Commission reached regarding the IDF’s specific actions in each case."

"The Commission’s failure to account for the deaths reinforces the view that the Israeli authorities are unwilling or incapable of delivering accountability for abuses of international law committed by Israeli forces," the statement concluded.
