Lieberman accused Hamas, the militant group that controls Gaza, of using the media, as well as ambulances and medical patients, as cover to carry out attacks.
Israel's military on Tuesday confirmed the authenticity of a video that has spread widely showing a soldier shoot a Palestinian along the Gaza Strip border, but alleged it followed riots and warnings from troops.
Palestinians say protesters are being shot while posing no threat to soldiers.
In a statement by the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO), chief negotiator Dr Saeb Erekat called the video "a reflection of the cruel mentality of Israel's military occupation and the drive of its systematic shoot-to-kill policy against the Palestinian civilians".
According to the Palestinian Health Ministry, at least 31 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli army cross-border gunfire since March 30, when peaceful rallies began along the Gaza Strip's eastern border with Israel.
The PA had argued at the time that its decisions were caused by Hamas collecting government revenues in Gaza without sending them back to the Ramallah-based authority, whereas Hamas has accused the PA of deliberately applying further economic pressure on the impoverished coastal territory, which has been under an Israeli-imposed blockade for almost 11 years.
"This is a member of the military arm of Hamas who holds a rank parallel to that of captain, who was active in Hamas for many years", Lieberman said.

For long-time teachers, the protest reminds them of the one in 1990, which they thought would never need to be repeated. What will it take for this to end? But if the walkout progresses past then, there might not be a competition.
"This video may be from months ago, Israel is claiming, which does not in any way make it less horrifying", Ali Abunimah, co-founder of Electric Intifada, wrote on Twitter Monday.
Israel has said it has the right to defend its sovereign border, amid mounting global expressions of concern about the escalation of the past 10 days.
Media sources in Qalqilia, in northern West Bank, said several army jeeps invaded Azzoun town, east of the city, searched homes and abducted a teenage boy, identified as Yassin Rajeh Shbeita, 16, in addition to Bassam Nabil Hussein.
Israel has said that Hamas is attempting to use the cloak of peaceful protests to launch terrorist attacks, pointing to incidents of violence along the border, including what it describes as attempts to plant explosives and one shooting incident.
The army said the video was not from the recent unrest, and was taken in December when protesters allegedly tried to damage the border fence.
Apparently filmed by an Israeli soldier, the undated video shows what appears to be an unarmed man standing near the fence that separates Israel and Gaza. Other soldiers are heard cursing the man and then cheering when he falls. According to Zahalka, the public defending and praising for the actions shown in the video by Israeli ministers and politicians promote such behavior.
It condemned the filming of the incident and the statements the soldiers made. Last week, officials estimated there were some 30,000 Gazans participating.
