Defense Minister Ehud Barak expressed his gratitude for outgoing IDF Chief of General Staff Gabi Ashkenazi, saying that he provided an important contribution to the strength of the IDF and the security of Israel.

"This is not an evening of personal reflection," Barak told Ashkenazi, "but an evening where we tell you, Gabi, thanks."

Barak continued: "Thanks for the service which you have provided, an important contribution to the strength of the IDF and the security of the country. Gabi brought along with him experience, talent, and in particular, the understanding that we must return to the fundamentals of military professionalism. We are prepared better than ever, and as a result, you deserve a big thank you. I wish you and your wife Ronit a good luck blessing in whatever you decide to do."
