Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has stated that Israel will continue to hold security responsibility over the Gaza Strip even after the conclusion of the conflict with Hamas. The specifics of Israel’s approach to Gaza’s post-war future remain uncertain as Israeli forces intensify their operations within the territory to dismantle the Hamas organisation, which has governed the Strip for over 15 years.

Netanyahu emphasised the importance of maintaining security control, citing the potential for a resurgence of Hamas terror activities in the absence of such oversight. He also acknowledged some level of responsibility for the defense situation that allowed Hamas to carry out attacks on October 7.

The Israel-Hamas conflict was sparked when around 3,000 terrorists breached the Gaza border, resulting in approximately 1,400 casualties, predominantly civilians, and the abduction of over 240 individuals, including at least 30 children.

While Israel has affirmed it does not intend to reoccupy Gaza, Netanyahu’s comments suggest the possibility of an extended military presence in the Strip, home to over 2 million Palestinians. The Biden administration has expressed opposition to Israeli reoccupation and urged Israel to develop a plan for governing Gaza post-Hamas rule.

The discussion surrounding who will replace Hamas in governance has raised questions. Some advocate for the Ramallah-based Palestinian Authority, while others doubt its stability and reliability.

This marks Netanyahu’s first interview with American media since the onset of the conflict. He addressed criticism regarding his acknowledgment of responsibility for the events of October 7, indicating that such matters will be addressed after the war. Netanyahu also indicated a willingness to consider humanitarian pauses in the fighting for the delivery of aid and release of hostages held in Gaza.

The potential for a ceasefire remains contingent on the release of all hostages held by Hamas, according to Netanyahu. He noted that Israel possesses some intelligence regarding the hostages but did not provide further details.
