Special Press Conference Praises IDF for Daring Raid


A special press conference took place Wednesday afternoon to explain the daring IDF raid that prevented an Iranian weapons ship from reaching Gaza. Both Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon (Likud Beytenu) and IDF Chief of Staff Lt. General Benny Ganz spoke. 

Lt. Gen. Ganz praised the operation which he said was the final action in a long process. The ship was tracked throughout the Middle East during its journey and was finally intercepted on Wednesday after a complex operation involving multiple Israeli security departments.
