President Shimon Peres called outgoing IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi "one of the best chiefs of staff," at a ceremony in Ashkenazi's honor on Monday.
"I had the privilege of seeing all 18 IDF chiefs of staff. At my age, I can do a real and personal comparison, and I want to tell you: Your contribution to Israel's security is unique, excellent and praiseworthy. You were one of the best chiefs of staff that Israel has known."
