Eng309BETHLEHEM (PNIC):-Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman warned the Hamas movement, on Friday, in a tweet that read "The holidays are now behind us, take that into account."

Lieberman took to his Twitter account and posted a tweet warning the Hamas movement, "We got through the High Holy Days just as we had planned, without a war erupting and while exacting a heavy price from the rioters on the Gaza border."

He added "But the holidays are now behind us, and I tell the heads of Hamas: 'Take that into account.'"

Lieberman’s remarks come after he held a security meeting on Thursday with the Israeli army Chief of Staff, the head of the Military Intelligence Directorate, the coordinator of government activities in the territories (COGAT) and other senior officials to discuss the current situation in the besieged Gaza Strip.

A Hebrew-language news outlet reported that Lieberman’s office released a statement saying "The defense minister examined the readiness of the forces around the Gaza Strip and instructed the IDF to maintain maximum alertness and be prepared for any scenario."

In addition, during the meeting, Lieberman along with the senior defense officials decided to deploy additional Israeli forces to the southern command along the Gaza borders in the next few days.

The Israeli army said that the decision was taken in order "to continue the determined policy to thwart terror attacks and prevent infiltration into Israel in the border fence area of the Gaza Strip."
