Israeli Defense Minister promised to destroy Hamas in the case of the war in Gaza

The head of the Israeli Ministry of Defense Avigdor Lieberman warned the ruling Hamas movement in the Gaza Strip that the next war with Israel will be the last for them, but made it clear that it is not committed to the armed confrontation.

Over the past six years Israel has three major operations in Gaza, but each time was held by the overthrow of the Islamic regime and the reoccupation of two million Palestinian enclave, where the Israelites went into 2005 year.

"As a defense minister I would like to make it clear that we have no intention to start a new war against our neighbors in the Gaza Strip or the West Bank, in Lebanon or Syria," - said Lieberman in a rare interview with the Arabic-language newspaper "Al-Quds", which published in East Jerusalem.

"But if Hamas impose Israel following the war, it will be the last for them ... It would be their last confrontation, because we completely destroy them," - he warned the minister.

In case of refusal of the Hamas armed confrontation with Israel Lieberman promises to Gaza, which is ten years living in conditions of blockade and economic sanctions, investment in industrial zones, sea and air ports.

In a recent interview with the Russian-speaking TV channel RTVi Lieberman said that Hamas leaders are "very, very scared and do not want no conflict" with Israel. According to him, all the recent rocket attacks from the Gaza Strip - the work of small groups of opposition of Hamas and ideologically attracted to the terrorists "Islamic state" (IG, banned in Russia).

"Hamas is in this respect behaves over carefully," - said Lieberman.
