BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:30 P.M.) - Hundreds celebrated the resignation of Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman in the streets of Gaza City on Wednesday.

Lieberman, a proponent of strong military action against Hamas, announced his resignation on Wednesday in protest of the Egypt-brokered ceasefire reached with Hamas in Gaza after the worst outbreak of violence since 2014.

Demonstrators could be seen marching, setting fire to a poster of Lieberman and sharing sweets in the streets of Gaza City.

"The coward, Lieberman, came threatening and he said in his election campaign that if he becomes the Defence Minister, he will kill [Ismail] Haniyeh within 24 hours. He became the Defence Minister. What did he do? He became the trash of the history... He fell and Hamas stayed" said Ayman Barood, a member of the militant group.

The tense ceasefire between Israel and Gaza had already been put under pressure when a fisherman from Gaza was shot and killed by Israeli forces on Wednesday, after the ceasefire had begun.
