Lieberman: Gaza Border Quiet Is Deceptive, Hamas Seeks Israel’s Destruction


The relative quiet being enjoyed by Israelis living near Gaza is deceptive, and another armed conflict with Hamas could break out at any minute, Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman warned as he toured the area.

“Hamas and the rest of the groups in Gaza have not abandoned their desire to destroy Israel,” he said, adding that the only thing stopping Hamas from instigating a war is the fact that “they know that the balance of power is not in their favor and if they act against us, they will pay a very heavy price.”

Lieberman might have forgotten that this isn’t the “only thing.” In fact, it is the mercy of the Shomer Yisroel that is stopping Hamas from instigating a war.

A senior IDF official told Israel’s Channel 2 today that Hamas has fully replenished the military capability and missile stockpile it had prior to the 2014 Gaza war. He said the material for making weapons came through the Egyptian-controlled Rafiah border crossing.
