Lieberman described a Tuesday ceasefire ending the worst escalation between Israel and Palestinian militants in Gaza since a 2014 war as a "capitulation to terror" and announced he was quitting his post.
"Our enemies pleaded for a ceasefire and they know very well why", Netanyahu said, denying accusations that he had gone soft on Gaza terrorists.
Israel's defence minister resigned over the Gaza Strip ceasefire and said the country should hold elections "as soon as possible".

After two days of fighting sparked by the deaths of seven Palestinians and one Israeli soldier, Israel's cabinet agreed to a cease-fire on Tuesday, the BBC reported.
Seven Palestinians were killed in Gaza over the course of some 24 hours as Israeli strikes targeted militants and flattened buildings while sending fireballs and plumes of smoke into the sky.

In response, the Israel Defense Forces bombed over 160 sites connected to Hamas and Islamic Jihad, including four sites the army identified as "key strategic assets".
Israel used air support to withdraw its soldiers and seven Palestinians, including a Hamas commander, as well as one Israeli soldier were killed in the exchange.
He said he also fiercely objected to Israel's allowing Qatar to deliver $15 million in aid to Gaza last week.
Sunday's special forces operation and resulting clash upset those efforts, leading to questions over the timing of the covert Israeli move.
On Wednesday, Israel's prime minister defended the agreement.
"Behold the political slaughter dealt to leaders of the occupation who aren't capable of dealing with Gaza", the organization's spokesperson said in a statement. Israeli snipers have killed about 170 people, a lot of them unarmed.
