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.
