Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has granted Hamas heads in the Gaza Strip "immunity" over recent terror attacks in the West Bank, MK Avigdor Liberman claimed on Saturday, warning that terrorists "know nothing will happen to them."
Speaking at a Shabbatarbut event in Beersheba, the Yisrael Beytenu chief attacked Netanyahu for not taking more action to "assassinate Hamas terrorist heads in Gaza, who are funding the terror.
"There is a loss of control [over terrorism]," Liberman said. "It has become a daily occurrence...who is responsible for the terror? The Gaza Strip is [ordering attacks].
"Netanyahu mustn't continue as prime minister for even a single day - he is an existential threat to the State of Israel," the former finance minister claimed.
Ben-Gvir 'has no ideology or policies,' Liberman says
Liberman was also asked about recent comments made by National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir, who said that the Jewish right to live is greater than the Palestinians' right of movement in the West Bank.
The comments brought about an international wave of condemnations, including from the United States which hit out at Ben-Gvir's "inflammatory racist rhetoric."
Liberman said that Ben-Gvir was only "playing up to his crowd."
"We cannot give him an audience or talk about his statements," Liberman explained. "He and [Finance Minister Bezalel] Smotrich are responsible for the loss of control in the West Bank. There are no policies or ideologies in their words."
