Defence Minister Ehud Barak made the announcement in parliament in response to a no-confidence motion introduced by opposition parties against the raid, and a day after rejecting a proposal by U.N. Secretary-General Ban ki-Moon for an international panel to investigate the takeover.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon called for an immediate investigation into the Israeli raid on international aid flotilla to Gaza and wanted it to be completed as soon as possible.

The foreign ministers of France and Britain said an "international" inquiry was necessary to resolve the dispute over Israel's deadly raid on Gaza aid ships.
