The reason that the IDF didn’t have adequate intelligence regarding the ambush on the Marmara is that Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan and the Turkish security services relayed to the Israeli intelligence services that only peace activists would be on the flotilla and that violence was not to be expected. All this was said in the framework of diplomatic efforts just before the flotilla disembarked. There are protocols documenting this. For this reason, the intelligence estimate was that in all probability, the Israeli marines would not encounter resistance like they did, in fact, encounter.
