Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman told Israeli television on Friday that military operations in Gaza must continue "until Hamas waves the white flag."

In an interview with Channel 2 that aired just a few hours after it was learned that a four-year-old boy succumbed to his wounds which he sustained as a result of a mortar strike on a kibbutz near the Gaza frontier, Liberman said that the government needs to spell out "a strategic goal" that encompasses "defeating Hamas, bringing it to submission."

"That means Hamas waves the white flag," the foreign minister said. "That is a realistic scenaio, and it must be a goal."
