Yisrael Beytenu leader and former Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman has slammed Israel's response to Hamas, saying the government has "double standards" when it comes to rockets fallin in the South versus rest of Israel.

"If 60 rockets fell in Tel Aviv and the Gush Dan area, or Jerusalem and the surrounding area,
How would the State of Israel react?" he questioned on FacebookHe questioned how 60 rockets still fell in Sderot and the Gaza vicinity after Israel's "powerful" response, according to the prime minister.

"No terrorist was even scratched," Liberman added. "This is apparently part of the rules of the game accepted by the Israeli government and the Israeli media. These are double standards that morally bankrupt Israel's security."
