Liberman says 160 terrorists killed in Gaza border clashes
Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman says during a Knesset plenum session that 160 terrorists have been killed since late March during weekly clashes along the Gaza-border.
“Up to now, 160 terrorists have been killed near the [border] fence. The average Gaza resident hasn’t come to the fence. Those who have indirectly or directly received a salary and orders from Hamas,” he says.
The number he provides is higher than that of the Hamas-run health ministry in Gaza, which says some 130 Palestinians have been killed during the violent protests.
