Former Israeli Defense Minister Claims Hamas Has Advanced Weapons


Former Israeli defense minister Avigdor Liberman claimed in the Knesset that Hamas now has advanced weapons.

The Jerusalem Post reports that Lieberman said, “Hamas is developing cruise missiles, cluster bombs, and unmanned aerial vehicles with jet engines.”

“Do you know what it means for the residents of Israel if, God forbid, a conflict breaks out?” he asked.

He said Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Benny Gantz are concealing this information and rather than dealing with the problem are appeasing Hamas.

“Do you know what price we will pay? If I was you I would have summoned all the regional council heads of Gaza border communities to a meeting with the Defense Minister, so he could explain to them what he intends to do to fight against cruise missiles and cluster bombs,” Lieberman said.
