Israeli media said on Wednesday morning that Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman، called members of his parliamentary bloc، "Yisrael Beitino" to an emergency meeting to be held shortly.
"Lieberman will announce at the end of the meeting his resignation from office in an effort to preserve his political future because it is a security failure،" the Hebrew-language Walla website quoted an Israeli minister as saying.
The minister noted that Lieberman's decision followed the decision of the Israeli Cabinet to approve a cease-fire with Hamas in Gaza.
It is worthy to mention that، the Israeli occupation authorities are shelling a number of sites in Gaza، resulting in the martyrdom of a number of Palestinians.
Palestinian Ambassador to the United Nations Riyadh Mansour said that the UN Security Council failed to discuss and condemn the situation in Gaza Strip.
