FM: Troops prefer to flee because they fear military police

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman leveled criticism at the troops who fled a stone-throwing mob in the West Bank last week, saying that the "soldiers choose to flee instead of shooting because they fear being investigated by the military police."


Lieberman, who made the remarks during a Hanukkah event held by his party, Yisrael Beiteinu, in Tel Aviv, also asserted that any future rocket attack from Gaza will warrant an Israeli invasion of the Strip. (Yuval Karni)
