Netanyahu insists on Israel maintaining security control in Gaza post-war


Netanyahu: Israel to Retain Open-Ended Security Control Over Gaza

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made a ​statement on Tuesday, emphasizing the ⁣need for open-ended‌ security⁣ control over the ‍Gaza Strip even after the war against Hamas ends. This announcement comes as Israel’s military continues its pursuit to wipe⁢ out‌ the​ territory’s Hamas ⁢rulers, with troops entering Gaza’s second-largest city.

The ongoing war has taken a devastating toll on the people of Gaza, ‌with over 15,000 Palestinians killed and⁣ three-fourths⁣ of the population displaced. The Health Ministry in Hamas-run Gaza reported that the death toll has surpassed ⁢15,890, with more than 41,000 wounded. The majority of the casualties are women ‍and children, ⁤raising ‍concerns about civilian safety amidst‍ the conflict.

Efforts for a longer truce are ‍underway,⁢ with the United States, Qatar, and Egypt working towards⁢ a resolution. Hamas has linked talks‌ on releasing hostages to a permanent cease-fire, adding a layer of complexity to ​the negotiations.
