Labor MK Omer Bar-Lev fiercly criticized the Netanyahu administration this Saturday, claiming that it has handed over the initiative to the terrorist group Hamas.

"Hamas has the initiative," he said, "Hamas leads the Israeli government, when it wants quiet there's quiet. When it wants war and noise there is war."

Bar-Lev stated that, unless the Netanyahu administration breaks this cycle, it will continue and "in the worst case will grow into a war nobody wants."

The MK was speaking at a cultural event held in Rehovot.
