Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Tuesday praised Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz over the Navy's successful interception of the Gaza-bound French ship Dignity - al-Karama earlier in the day.

Netanyahu noted the successful mission of the Shayetet 13 and other forces who were able to take over the ship without violence and without causing any casualties.

A statement from the Prime Minister's Office said, "Israel will continue to enforce the naval blockade [on Gaza] to prevent the smuggling of weapons and missiles."
