FM Liberman Criticizes the Results of Operation Protective Edge

Published on: February 15, 2015

Yisrael Beytenu Chairman and Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman talked about Operation Protective Edge at an event in Beer Sheva on Saturday, saying that the fighting in Gaza ended with no results: “We fought and were inside shelters for 50 days. What’s the result? Hamas continues to fire at us. My position was clear during the operation and after it. If it was up to me, they (the Hamas leaders) wouldn’t have left the bunker after 50 days, but rather been buried underground.”

FM Liberman said: “It cannot be that we counted 70 dead and dozens wounded, and the country is refraining from doing anything. My opinion on the matter was clear, and I voiced it publicly and also voted for it in the cabinet. Just like we can’t launch a military operation every two years, we can’t hold elections every two years. It’s impossible to live like this.”
