Watch: Soldiers Sing Shabbat Songs En-Route to Iran Weapons Ship


The ship had apparently been sent by Iran, and was destined for Gaza's Hamas rulers when it was raided before dawn last Wednesday by the IDF's elite Shayetet-13 naval commando unit off the shores of Sudan.

Despite the complexity and potential dangers of the operation, as Israeli soldiers left on their mission to intercept the deadly cargo just over a week ago they took a moment to celebrate Shabbat - an inspiring moment captured on video by the IDF's Spokesperson's Unit.
