Avigdor Liberman, the Yisrael Beytenu chairman, said on Wednesday that the Israeli government would be “capitulating to terrorism” if reports that it is negotiating a five-year truce with Hamas are accurate.

“If, indeed, the government of Israel is going for a deal with Hamas, and Hamas continues to arm itself and rehabilitate its terrorist infrastructure, that is tantamount to capitulating to terrorism, and I hope that these are just media reports and not a reflection of reallity,” Liberman said.
