Inside Israel's commando unit which raided Gaza flotilla
Panorama is given exclusive access to Israel's elite commando unit which raided a Turkish aid flotilla sailing to Gaza in May.Read more on this story
Panorama has been given unique access to the training of Israel's special unit Naval Commando 13, which seized a ship in a Gaza-bound aid flotilla resulting in the deaths of nine activists from Turkey.
The incident sparked an international outcry in May.
Colonel G, one of the commanders of the elite Israeli unit, said it was a complicated task and lessons had been learned.
Thousands of people attended the funerals of the Turkish men killed, including Cevdet Kiliclar, who was honoured as a "martyr".
Turk Cevdet Kiliclar, one of nine activists killed on a Gaza-bound aid mission, was prepared to become a martyr for the Palestinian cause, his wife has said.
There was an international outcry when Israel seized a ship in a flotilla trying to break the naval blockade on Gaza.
Mr Kiliclar's widow, Derya, said: "He was crying his eyes out. He really wanted to go there to be a martyr."
Colonel G, one of the commanders of the Israeli special forces who seized the Mavi Marmara, said lessons had been learned.
