Leading opposition party Kadima on Saturday slammed the government of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for allowing the opening of the Rafah crossing between Egypt and the Gaza Strip.

"The breaking of the blockade with no coordination with Israel, and against its will, constitutes a diplomatic failure of the Netanyahu government - that because of its diplomatic weakness and inability to create coordination and cooperation with international parties has left Israel isolated, in a position of weakened security, while Hamas has gotten stronger," a statement released by the party read.

"Once again it has been proven that the Netanyahu government talks tough against Hamas, but actually Hamas has become stronger than it ever was under this regime," the statement added.
