FM says Operation Protective Edge should end with IDF controlling all of Gaza; says ceasefire only allows Hamas to make more rockets.
 
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 argued..
