Turkish Ambassador Mithat Rende presented Turkey's report to UN investigation committee in New York.

Sources said that Turkey's contacts and initiatives in this issue would continue.

Nine people, including eight Turkish and one U.S. citizen of Turkish descent, were killed by Israeli forces in a raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla including Mavi Marmara ship on May 31. Around 30 people were wounded in the attack.

The UN Human Rights Council set up the international fact-finding mission on June 2 to investigate violations of international law, including international humanitarian and human rights law, resulting from the Israeli attacks on the flotilla of ships carrying humanitarian assistance.
