Deputy Prime Minister Moshe Ya'alon, who was filling in for Prime Minister Netanyahu, was never informed by Defense Minister Ehud Barak of the plans to take over the flotilla, Channel 2 news reported on Thursday

On the eve of the deadly navy commando raid on the Mavi Marmara, Netanyahu was visiting North America, and Ya'alon has said that he was never informed of the raid plans.
