Israeli defence minister quits over Gaza truce

After the fiercest fighting in years, a ceasefire brought relative calm to the Israeli-Gaza border Wednesday (November 14).

But the decision to hold fire instead shattered the peace of Israel's coalition government.

Israeli's defense minister Avigdor Lieberman resigned in protest.

He says the truce is a "capitulation to terror" and that he couldn't look Israelis who live on the border in the eye.

This is how those residents felt.

Protests broke out in Sderot, the Israeli city worse hit by rocket fire from Gaza.

Images the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu would rather not see a year before the country's next election.

In Gaza they celebrated.

Hamas is calling it a victory.

Since Monday (November 12) Israeli airstrikes had killed seven Palestinians and destroyed several buildings used by Hamas.

In Israel dozens were wounded in rocket attacks from Gaza.

The flare-up evokes memories of the last major conflict in 2014.

The enemies are making it clear that the pause is an armed stand-off rather than a long-term accommodation.

This fighting erupted after a botched Israeli commando mission in Gaza on Sunday (November 11) turned into a gunfight and airstrikes.

We know Lieberman wants harsher military action against Hamas.

If the calm doesn't hold, Netanyahu will face pressure to take a tougher stance.
