The Israeli military has claimed it developed a breakthrough technology that has already allowed it to detect and destroy three underground border crossings within the last two months.
"The defense minister said that all such [diversionary] tunnels would be destroyed by the end of 2018," press service of Liberman's Yisrael Beiteinu party said.
The destruction of tunnels and construction of an underground belt around the Gaza Strip are two key points of Liberman's program on settling the situation in the Gaza Strip.
The politician also proposed that strikes be carried out in response to any rocket launch from the Gaza Strip, which would thereby undermine Hamas' capabilities and boost Israeli settlement near the Palestinian enclave.
"And the last important initiative… is in fact a formula, under which Israel is ready to co-exist with the [Gaza] Strip — reconstruction in exchange for disarmament," the party said.
Liberman noted that last year, Hamas invested $260 million in the production of rockets and tunnel construction.
"If they had invested these funds in the water system or health care system, they would have been in a totally different situation," the minister added.
The Israeli government refuses to recognize Palestine as an independent political and diplomatic entity and continues to build settlements in the occupied areas, despite objections from the United Nations.
