Lieberman predicts that the Israeli government will either fall before the end of the year or require restructuring.
Avigdor Lieberman, leader of the right-wing opposition party Yisrael Beiteinu, anticipates the fall or restructuring of the current Netanyahu government before the end of this year, saying it will not be able to pass the state budget at this time, when it is only supported by a coalition of 61 deputies. Lieberman stressed that there are many differences in the ideological positions between him and Netanyahu, accusing the latter of not following through on many promises agreed upon in the political agreement with the ultra-Orthodox Jewish Haredim parties.
On the occasion of the first anniversary of Operation Protective Edge in the Gaza Strip, during which Lieberman was the foreign minister, he said that Israel allowed Hamas to produce rockets and dig tunnels in exchange for their silence.
Lieberman stated in a cultural symposium in the city Beersheba that he explained at the time that Netanyahu remains unable to undermine the rule of Hamas in Gaza, and that if it is impossible for him to do so, Netanyahu should not even try.
