Palestinians in Gaza hail Israeli defence minister’s resignation over truce

Palestinians in Gaza hailed the resignation of Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman on Wednesday (November 14) as “victory”.Lieberman announced his resignation in protest at a Gaza ceasefire that he called a “capitulation to terror”, weakening Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s conservative coalition government.In the West Bank city of Ramallah, Palestinian Foreign Minister, Riyad Al-Maliki, said Lieberman’s decision was “not surprising” and that it was made for political gains. Lieberman said his resignation, which will go into effect 48 hours after he submits a formal letter to Netanyahu, also withdraws his far-right Israel Beitenu party from the coalition.That would leave Netanyahu with control of just 61 of the 120 seats in parliament a year before Israel’s next election.
