Israel's New Defense Minister Flies to Daughter's Wedding in IDF Helicopter on Government's Tab

Defense officials say Moshe Ya'alon was tied up in urgent security consultations and flight prevented him from running late to wedding.

Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon flew to his daughter's wedding at Kibbutz Grofit near Eilat on Thursday of last week in an Israel Defense Forces helicopter. Wedding guests were surprised to see the new defense minister touch down in an army aircraft at an event that was considered a private family affair.
