Most of the nine men killed on board the Turkish ferry Mavi Marmara were members of Islamic movements, it has now emerged.
The majority belonged to Insan Hak ve Hurriyetleri, the Foundation for Human Rights and Freedoms and Humanitarian Relief, or IHH. The Turkish Islamist movement has ties to Hamas and al Qaida and financed and organised the ferry's trip.
Israel claims that many of the other passengers on the ferry had links to terrorist groups as well.
IDF officers who were involved in last week's operation say there were two groups of passengers.
