Although Netanyahu has already declared that Israel will have “security responsibility” for the Gaza Strip, which is still ruled by the Palestinian radical Islamist movement Hamas, even after this war. But in an interview with the American station Fox News on Thursday, he said that he “does not want to occupy Gaza” or rule there.

“The Israeli army will retain control of the Gaza Strip, we will not hand it over to international forces,” Netanyahu said during a meeting with mayors of villages in Israel’s border areas with the Gaza Strip. It was his first meeting with the leadership of these municipalities since the start of Israel’s war with Hamas on October 7.
The Prime Minister only scheduled the meeting after facing widespread criticism for not having done so before. Criticism intensified when he decided to meet first with the heads of Jewish settlements in the West Bank.
There is a lot of media speculation about the future of the Gaza Strip after the war, and it is not yet clear what it will look like. According to the Times of Israel website, US officials are proposing that some international forces, for example composed of units from Arab countries, provide security in the Gaza Strip for a transitional period.
Eventually, the administration of the Gaza Strip would be taken over by the Palestinian Authority, now based in Ramallah in the occupied West Bank and headed by Mahmoud Abbas, head of the Fatah party.

The United States wants the Palestinian Authority to be included in the negotiations on the future of the Gaza Strip after the war. It was also repeated by the head of American diplomacy, Antony Blinken, who met with Abbas in Ramallah last week. According to Blinken, the role of the Palestinian Authority should be key.

Many analysts claim that the only way to peace in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is the existence of two states, i.e. Israel and Palestine, which would include the West Bank and East Jerusalem in addition to the Gaza Strip.
However, such a solution is rejected by the majority of members of the current Israeli right-wing cabinet, who consider the creation of an independent Palestinian state to be a danger for Israel, writes the DPA agency. Some far-right ministers, on the other hand, want to annex the now-occupied West Bank and also the Gaza Strip.
Israel began bombing the Gaza Strip in response to the attack by Hamas on October 7, when three thousand militants invaded its territory from this strip and at the same time Hamas fired thousands of rockets at Israel from Gaza. The attack claimed 1,400 lives, and over 11,000 Palestinians died in the bombing of the Gaza Strip, according to the authorities there, which is controlled by Hamas. But the information cannot be independently verified.
