Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman said in a meeting of close associates that Israel should assassinate Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal despite the fact that he resides in Qatar, Channel 2 reported Monday.

According to the report, Liberman said in the meeting that killing Mashaal is the only way to ensure that further infiltration tunnels from Gaza to Israel will not be built in the future.

The foreign minister added that Mashaal was responsible for and had funded terror attacks which have killed hundreds of Israelis.
