Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman on Wednesday said the government's handling of the Hebron Beit Machpela affair was wrong and threatens the stability of the coalition. Lieberman spoke hours after the security establishment evacuated several dozen families who had moved in without authorization over the weekend.

Liberman called for decision-making power to be stripped from Defense Minister Ehud Barak in light of the affair. The Defense Ministry's handling of Jewish settlements is raising tensions instead of finding solutions to the problems of Israeli citizens, he said, adding that responsibility for settlement in the West Bank should be transferred to a special ministerial committee.

The evictions, he said, threaten the stability of the coalition and threaten to break it up, Army Radio reported.
