Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman called for those in Israeli society who condemn settlers to do some soul searching, following a meeting with Japanese Ambassador to Israel Haruhisa Takeuchi on Sunday.

Lieberman's comments came as the IDF announced that it had arrested several suspects in the murder of five members of the Fogel family, during a terrorist attack at the settlement of Itamar last month.

The foreign minister said: "Those who were so quick to condemn the settlers and the settlements, and to turn public opinion against them, they should do some soul searching."

Lieberman added that he expects every one of them to condemn the murder.
