Lieberman not part of negotiations with Hamas

Aug. 24, 2018 3:57 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 28, 2018 11:26 A.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli Minister of Defense Avigdor Lieberman said, on Friday, that he does not believe in reaching an agreement with the Hamas movement.

According to Israeli news site Ynet reported, Lieberman said "I am not involved in the arrangement, I don't believe in the arrangement and the only arrangement is reality on the ground."

Lieberman's statement came during his visit to an Israeli community near the Gaza Strip borders where he met with regional leaders.

Lieberman added that "quiet will be met with economy, terror will be met with no economy," pointing out to weekly Gaza protests.

"If there is quiet this Friday, the (Kerem Shalom) border crossing will remain open. If there is no quiet, it will be closed," Lieberman said threatening.

Lieberman had reopened the Kerem Shalom crossing last week following three days of calm at the Gaza Strip borders.
