Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Tuesday congratulated Israeli Navy's Flotilla 13 commandos on the successful operation during which they took control of a freighter ship with dozens of tons of weaponry from Iran headed for Hamas in the Gaza Strip. Barak closely followed the Victoria ship's movements in recent days with other IDF commanders.

Barak said Tuesday that "the IDF and navy fighters prevented the smuggling of weapons into the Gaza Strip which were intended to be used against the residents of Israel."
