Israeli war minister: Next war will not spare population centers

Palestine Information Center – October 3, 2017

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM – Israel’s war minister Avigdor Lieberman warned on Monday that the next war is likely to feature attacks on population centers and civilians, according to Haaretz daily.

Avigdor Lieberman, who took part on Monday evening in a ceremony in which certificates of honor were awarded to 31 Israeli officers and soldiers from various units in the army, said: “The next confrontation, if it breaks out, will take on a completely different character, when our enemies will try to strike first at population centers and civilian infrastructure. So we will not have the luxury to wage a long war.”

“We live in a new reality of a new Middle East, which is much worse than the old Middle East. And in this terrible new reality, we have yet to face difficult tests,” he added.

“Any confrontation will have to be conducted from the very first moment in the highest profile, using all the army’s strengths,” Lieberman continued. “If there is a crossing of red lines, the other side must know in advance that it is going to pay very heavy prices.”

“The sovereign, too, regardless of whether he controls his territory or not – as soon as a hostile action takes place, the sovereign will also bear all the responsibility,” the war minister further threatened.

The international community has ceaselessly sounded alarm bells over the Israeli aggression on civilian homes, infrastructure, and unarmed communities across the occupied Palestinian territories and the blockaded Gaza Strip, in aggressions deemed by the international law as crimes against humanity.

  1. This war criminal sounds like he’s preparing excuses already, for what Israel intends to do to Iran(or whoever). Civilian casualties didn’t stop Israel the last time they attacked Gaza and killed over 2,000, and injured over 7,000 civilians.
    When it comes to war against Arabs or Persians, Israel will do ANYTHING…….

  2. If you’re talking about Iran, don’t believe the Israeli lies that Iran wants to “wipe Israel off the map”. That lie is totally discredited and is only used in desperation by Nutjobyahu these days……..(Israel, by the way, used Phosphorus bombs in their attack on Gaza a couple of years ago, so if anyone is going to target civilians, you can guarantee it will be Israel.
