Lieberman: 'When' will Gaza war occur not 'if'

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli Defense Minister, Avigdor Lieberman, said upon his arrival in the besieged Gaza Strip on Monday that the question is not if a war will break out or not but when.

According to Ynet news outlet, during a meeting with Israeli army senior officials in Gaza, Lieberman stressed that the next round of fighting with Gaza is inevitable and that it’s only a matter of time.

He said “The question we should ask is not whether another round of fighting will start, but when will it start.”

He continued to say “We are prepared, know what we should do and how to do it.”

Regardless of the tensions already present due to the nearly 12-year siege imposed by Israel, there has been a violent escalation between Gaza and Israel, in which 168 Palestinians were killed and over 18,000 others injured over the past four months.
