Defense Minister Ehud Barak praised Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz, Navy Vice Admiral Eliezer Marom and IDF soldiers for the smooth interception of the Gaza-bound French ship Dignity.

The extensive diplomatic work of the Prime Minister's Office, the Foreign Ministry and the Defense Ministry succeeded in reducing the number of people participating in the Gaza flotilla, Barak said in a statement.
