By Times of Israel Staff.. Avigdor Liberman vows Israel will invest in seaport, airport, industry in Strip… as soon as Hamas gives up on tunnels and rockets. Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman on Thursday (February 16, 2017) called on residents of the Gaza Strip to begin a direct dialogue with Israel as a path toward improving their lives, telling them, in Arabic, “Let’s talk.” Liberman’s comments were posted on the new Arabic, Hebrew and English website of the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT), the Defense Ministry body that acts as liaison between Israel and the Palestinian territories. Stressing that Israel was not to blame for the terrible conditions Gazans lived under, Liberman said there was no reason for the situation to remain as it is.

“The moment Hamas gives up on tunnels and rockets, we will be the first ones to invest and build [Gaza’s residents] a seaport, an airport, and industrial zones by the Kerem Shalom and Erez crossings,” he said. “We are able to immediately create about 40,000 jobs for the residents of Gaza.” Read the full story.
