Israel Defence Minister Lieberman resigns over Gaza ceasefire
2018-11-14 16:43:56

Israel's Defence Minister has resigned over the cabinet's decision to accept a ceasefire ending two days of fighting with Palestinian militants in Gaza, the BBC reports. 

Avigdor Lieberman, the leader of the Yisrael Beiteinu party, denounced the move as "surrendering to terror".

He also criticised attempts to broker a long-term truce with the Hamas group.

Eight people were killed on Monday and Tuesday as militants fired 460 rockets towards Israel and Israeli forces bombed 160 targets in Gaza.

Hamas, which dominates Gaza, and other Palestinian militant groups announced on Tuesday afternoon that they had accepted an Egyptian-mediated ceasefire and would abide by it if Israel did too.
