Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman said Tuesday that Israel should "go all the way in Gaza," meaning it should reoccupy the territory.

Speaking during a Knesset press conference, Liberman said that Operation Protective Edge "should end with the IDF controlling all of Gaza."

The foreign minister said that such a move was the only way of properly dealing with Hamas and Islamic Jihad terror.

He said that even had Tuesday's short-lived ceasefire succeeded in holding, it would only constitute a break until the next round of fighting. Such a break would allow Hamas to create more rockets and develop more tunnels for carrying out terror attacks, Liberman said.
