Lieberman: 'I do not care about Palestinian state'

Sept. 27, 2018 4:14 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 1, 2018 12:07 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli Defense Minister, Avigdor Lieberman, said on Thursday that he "does not care about a Palestinian state," since his concern is the weekly protests along Gaza's border.

Following United States President Donald Trump's remarks during his meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday, Lieberman said, in a statement, "I do not care about a Palestinian state."

"I am interested in a secure Jewish state. There are 20% Arab citizens who demonstrate on every occasion holding Palestinian flags. This is the problem that needs to be solved."

Lieberman said that "Israel is ready to open the crossing as it did in the past. The United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) has returned to the crossing and they are prepared as well. The ball is now in the Syrian court," regarding Syria and the Quneitra crossing.
