ANKARA, Jan 23 (Reuters) - Turkey said on Sunday it was appalled and dismayed at the findings by an Israeli inquiry that cleared the Israeli government and military of wrongdoing in the raid on a Turkish aid ship bound for the Gaza Strip.
Turkey also said its own panel's report into the May 31 incident, which it submitted to a U.N. inquiry in September, had found that Israel's blockade on the territory and attack against the humanitarian aid convoy had violated international laws.
Muslim Turkey, which had been in alliance with the Jewish state in the past, has demanded an Israeli apology for the raid and compensation over the casualties. Israel has refused. (Writing by Ibon Villelabeitia; Editing by Elizabeth Fullerton)
