Netanyahu Reaffirms Plan to Take Control of Gaza; Palestinian Prime Minister Shtayyeh Resigns

HeadlineFeb 26, 2024

On Friday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu outlined his plan for a postwar Gaza: He called for Israel to maintain full security control of the entire Gaza Strip while opposing the future creation of a Palestinian state. This comes as negotiations continue over a possible six-week pause to the fighting as part of a deal to free the remaining hostages in Gaza.

In other developments, Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh and his Cabinet have resigned. He said, “I see that the next stage and its challenges require new governmental and political arrangements that take into account the new reality in Gaza and the need for a Palestinian-Palestinian consensus based on Palestinian unity and the extension of unity of authority over the land of Palestine.”
