Israeli Foreign Minister wants to topple Hamas

Jerusalem: Israel`s Foreign Minister says his
country should topple the Islamic Hamas regime in Gaza.

Avigdor Lieberman`s comments come after two days of
Palestinian rocket attacks against southern Israel, including
one that killed an Israeli man.

Israel has countered with airstrikes that have killed at
least 10 militants. The exchanges mark the worst
Israeli-Palestinian violence in months.

Lieberman told a party meeting on Monday that it was
unfathomable for Israel to accept a climate where every few
months, Gaza militants shut down life for more than 1 million
Israelis living within rocket range.

Lieberman is known for his fiery nature and harsh
criticism of Palestinians. It wasn`t clear whether he was
expressing his own opinion or government policy.
