Foreign Minister and  Yisrael Beytenu chairman, Avigdor Liberman, made a visit this afternoon to Moshav Nativ where he spoke at  the site of an excavated tunnel built by Hamas terrorists.

Liberman said during his visit that Hamas gunmen create such structures because of "decisions made by aimless, weak leadership that only know how to build fortifications, restore the terrorist tunnel networks and replenish missiles."

Liberman said that if he were defense minister, Hamas members would not be able to reconstruct tunnel networks. In addition, he also assured residents living near the Gaza Strip and in the South that the state is committed to their safety, and as defense minister he would make sure that the next round of fighting against Hamas will be the last.
