(Scroll down for video) A video was released showing how Israeli soldiers were enjoying a Shabbat dinner with songs and Kiddush before they raided an Iranian weapons ship, according to a video uploaded to YouTube by the idfnadesk.

As Shabbat began last week, several hundred soldiers were on their way to stop an Iranian arms shipment from reaching the Gaza Strip.

In the middle of the sea, the soldiers sang the traditional “Shalom Aleichem” song, which means “peace be with you.” On the video, one soldier is seen making kiddush on a cup of wine.

Days later, their successful mission brought peace to the nation of Israel. As we reported earlier, the Israeli Navy has successfully raided and seized an Iranian weapons ship intended to deliver weapons to terrorists, the Tazpit News Agency reported.

Early this morning Israeli Naval Commandos boarded a cargo ship carrying weapons off the coast of Sudan in the Red Sea, preventing an attempt to smuggle an Iranian shipment of advanced weaponry intended for terrorist organizations operating in the Gaza Strip.

The ship was flying a Panama flag, but is thought to be Iranian. The shipment of weapons originated in Syria, from where it was flown to Iran, and from there the weapons were shipped out to Sudan. Its final destination was destined to the Gaza Strip.

The weapons were disguised as sacks of cement. The IDF has indicated that the shipment is clearly an Iranian operation. The ship initially tried evasive maneuvers by sailing towards Iraq. Due to the combination of in-depth intelligence and enhanced operational capabilities the operation was a success.

The ship was carrying long range missiles, including M-302 missiles which have a 200 KM range, and numerous other advanced weapons.
