Israel must stage a full reoccupation of the Hamas-run Gaza Strip after militants there fired more than 50 rockets over the border, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said on Wednesday.

"Following an attack like this -- a barrage of more than 50 rockets -- there is no alternative to a full reoccupation of the entire Gaza Strip," he told Israel's private Channel 2 television.

Israel withdrew all troops and Jewish settlers from Gaza in summer 2005 but maintained a siege on 1.7 million Palestinians in the enclave since 2007.

Lieberman's threat to reoccupy Gaza
PA is secular and irrelevant for the Holy Land. Israel and Hamas must engage with each other for implementing the two state solution.
