Liberman: If it were up to me, Hamas leaders would be 'underground in graves'

Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman blasted Israel's Operation Protective Edge against Hamas in the Gaza Strip last summer for failing to yield positive results.

Liberman called to eradicate the Palestinian terror group instead of just prompt its members to hide.

"If it were up to me, Hamas leaders would not have left from their bunkers after 50 days, but rather would have stayed underground in graves," he said at a cultural event in Beersheba.

"It's only a matter of time until we face another round [of fighting] with Hamas and any normal country would not accept this," he added.
