U.N. Names Panel to Probe Israeli Killings on Gaza-Bound Ship – IPS ipsnews.net

Despite initial misgivings, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon received the tacit approval of the Israeli government to establish an international panel to probe the widely-condemned killings of nine Turkish civilians onboard a flotilla of ships carrying humanitarian aid to Gaza last May.

“This is an unprecedented development,” Ban said Monday, virtually patting himself on the back.

But Phyllis Bennis, a fellow of the Washington-based Institute for Policy Studies who has written extensively on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, remains highly sceptical given the Jewish state's track record.
