Tel Aviv, October 25 (RHC)-- The Israeli minister for military affairs says the regime’s next war on Gaza would be the “last” one, threatening to “totally destroy” the Palestinian resistance movements in the blockaded territory.
In an interview with al-Quds newspaper on Monday, Avigdor Lieberman said the next war "will be their last confrontation because we will completely destroy them." The comments drew an angry reaction from Palestinian activists, who took to online social media and slammed the Israeli official's remarks.
On the same day, the Israeli military launched an airstrike against what it called a position belonging to the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas in yet another act of aggression against the blockaded coastal enclave. No casualties were reported following the airstrike.
In mid-October, the UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Nickolay Mladenov raised concerns over the dire conditions in Gaza and said the regime in Tel Aviv must understand that punitive measures could trigger a new conflict between Tel Aviv and the Palestinian resistance fighters there.
In May, Hamas leader in Gaza Ismail Haniyeh warned that the next Israeli war on Gaza would be a decisive one and said the Hamas resistance movement was not afraid of Lieberman and the Israeli military.
