Senior officials of the defense establishment attended an official ceremony at the base, including Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon, IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz and former IDF chiefs Ehud Barak, Gabi Ashkenazi and Shaul Mofaz.

 

Barak and Ashkenazi, the main figures of the Harpaz affair, did not exchange words.

Ya'alon said in a formal ceremony at the base: "The IDF is maneuvering between various threats… and I often find myself thinking what Amnon would say.

 

"Amnon never asked for gratitude, and would prefer we talk about the soldiers, the State, society," the defense minister added.
