Israel approves plan to reoccupy Gaza

The Israeli occupation army proposed a plan to reoccupy the besieged Gaza Strip during any future offensive, Al-Khaleej Online reported yesterday.

The plan was approved 14 years after Israel’s unilateral disengagement from the costal enclave.

The Wallah news website, which is close to the Israeli intelligence, said the plan were prepared when Gadi Eisenkot was the chief of staff while his predecessor Aviv Kofach approved it.

The news website reported senior Israeli military officials saying: “Hamas might flareup the region and go for a major confrontation if the truce understandings failed.”

The Gaza Strip has suffered under a more than 12-year siege at the hands of Israel, with support from Egypt and the international community. Goods, food, aid, construction materials and other essentials have not been allowed into the Strip and people have been left unable to leave even to access medical care.

The General Federation of Palestinian Labour Unions reported last year that as a result of the siege, unemployment in the enclave almost doubled to 50 per cent, rising from 27.2 per cent before 2007.

A report released by the UN last month raised concerns that the Strip is “de-developing” faster than anticipated, such that the 2020 deadline by which it was said that Gaza would be “unliveable” may have already arrived.

The Gaza Strip has also been hit by Israel in three major offensives; 2008, 2012 and 2014 wars. These turned the coastal enclave into a pile of rubble.

In its most recent war, 2,251 people were killed and more than 11,000 were wounded. During “Operation Protective Edge” at least 20,000 buildings were destroyed in the Israeli bombardment, either reduced to rubble or rendered uninhabitable, including mosques, churches, hospitals and schools.

In February the Palestinian housing minister revealed that ten per cent of homes destroyed during the Israeli bombardment had still not been rebuilt.

  1. Israel will use the reoccupation to kill a lot more Palestinians. It’ll be a turkey shoot. Pompeo will not say a word. The UN will grouse a bit, but do nothing. Russia will do nothing.

  2. And what is even worse most Americans are not even aware of the problem because all they watch are media lies on big screen TV’s because they don’t read VT or possibly can’t read anyway. The question is what do thinking people do about this problem when most Americans today don’t even know the difference between the Old Testament and the New Testament and falsely believe they are one and the same. Do you see any peaceful way out of the deli ma of Israeli control of America? Here is a suggestion: Let all 50 States secede from the Union individually or in groups so there is nothing left of the federal government for Israel to steal from. How about this solution? Dishonest Abe is long gone so he can’t start a massive illegal Civil War again to seek to prevent States from leaving a totally corrupt Union today.
