White House officials are this week denying reports that Israel will take ‘seriously’ take over Gaza ‘and its security’ following the war. The comments came from Netanyahu who claimed that Israel ‘has’ to have control over the region to prevent attacks in the future.
“The president still believes that a reoccupation of Gaza by Israeli forces is not good. It’s not good for Israel; not good for the Israeli people,” said National Security Council spokesman John Kirby on “CNN This Morning.”
“One of the conversations that Secretary (Antony) Blinken has been having in the region is what does post-conflict Gaza look like? What does governance look like in Gaza? Because whatever it is it can’t be what it was on October 6. It can’t be Hamas,” he added.
