Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon on Monday spoke the praises of Senior Citizens Minister Uri Orbach who passed away at the age of 54 earlier in the day after a battle with a blood disease.

"Uri possessed the qualities to bring together religious and secular, left and right, Jews and non-Jews. He never spoke harshly and always respected others. Even those he disagreed with."

Ya'alon added that Orbach had clear views that he stood up for, but he was tolerant and patient enough to listen to the opinions of others.
