Israeli soldiers who took part in a raid on a Gaza-bound flotilla last May which resulted in the deaths of nine people had acted in self-defense, according to the first part of a report by an Israeli panel of inquiry into the incident, which was released Sunday.

The Turkel Commission also determined that Israel's three-and-a-half year blockade of the Gaza Strip does not break international law.
