Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon took time out from his busy schedule to attend his daughter's wedding. Due to his tight schedule as the newly appointed Defense Minister and the massive amount of traffic due to the Passover holiday, Yaalon took a helicopter to the family event. In an interview with Arutz Sheva news, the Defense Ministry stated, "he was busy up until the afternoon discussing operational emergencies and assessments in his office." The employees of the Ministry praised their new boss and congratulated him on the happy occasion stating, "Ya'alon is honest and serious, busy with state security until the wee hours of the night."
Prior to his role in public office, Yaalon was the Chief of Staff for the Israeli Defense Forces.
