Watch – Liberman tours Israel-Syria border: Israel is ready to open Quneitra crossing
Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman toured the Quneitra crossing on the Israel-Syria border this morning, along with Northern Regional Commander Maj. Gen. Yoel Strik and other senior officers.
Following Trump’s remarks at his meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Thursday he is not interested in a Palestinian state since he is more concerned with the weekly riots on the Gaza border fence.
“I do not care about a Palestinian state. I am interested in a secure Jewish state. There are 20 percent Arab citizens who demonstrate on every occasion holding Palestinian flags. This is the problem that needs to be solved,” Liberman said.
Regarding the Syrians and the Quneitra Crossing, the defense minister said that “Israel is ready to open the crossing as it did in the past. The United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) has returned to the crossing and they are prepared as well. The ball is now in the Syrian court.”
