Yisrael Beytenu chairman Avigdor Liberman blamed government policy on Friday for encouraging acts of violence like the shooting death of an Israeli father and son near Hebron.

"The attack is a direct consequence of the government's decision to pursue a policy of containment rather than a policy of vanquishing [terrorism]," Liberman said.

The former foreign minister accused Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon of "granting immunity" to  Hamas leaders in Gaza "who praise the murder of Jews and send Palestinians to clash with IDF troops along the Gaza border fence."

"That's not the way to fight terrorism," Liberman said.
