Former defense minister Avigdor Liberman slammed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a social media post on Friday, writing “the policy of surrender goes on!” 


 
In the post he included a mock photo of a big pile of US dollar bills with the caption: “The powerful response of the Israeli government to Hamas terror.” 
 
In the post itself, Liberman went on to mock the government by saying that its “powerful and strong” reaction to the direct hit suffered in Sderot on Thursday and the Friday clashes between March of Return protesters and IDF forces on Friday is…”$30 million to be given as protection money to Hamas next week.” 
 
The IDF attacked several terror targets in the Gaza strip in reaction to the rocket that hit aYeshiva in the southern city. 

On Friday, less than 24 hours after the attack, a Jordanian report said that the Israeli government conveyed a message to the Palestinian factions in the Gaza Strip that it will transfer Qatari funds by the end of next week.
