Peretz: Lieberman not joining c'tee on outposts

Defense Miniser Amir Peretz released a statement Thursday morning in which he denied inaccurate reports in Yediot Aharonot and Army Radio that Israel Beiteinu Chairman Avigdor Lieberman would be replacing former Science, Sports and Culture Minister Ophir Paz-Pines on the ministerial committee on outposts. Peretz said another minister from the Labor Party would replace Paz-Pines on the ministerial committee.
