Chief of General Staff Benny Gantz said Tuesday that the flotilla set for Gaza this week is not meant to bring Gazans humanitarian aid, but rather to work for Israel's delegitimization internationally.

Gantz, who was speaking from an IDF ceremony honoring IDF reservists, said there is no lack of basic supplies in Gaza, and they are "importing televisions and plasma screens, and exporting agricultural products to the entire Arab world."

Gantz said that the IDF was well equipped and ready to deal with any threat posed by flotilla activists.
