Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz announced that the occupation state is willing to reach a settlement with Hamas and improve conditions for the residents of the Gaza Strip.

In a tweet, Gantz wrote:

“I met this evening with the UN envoy Mladenov, and thanked him for his contribution to the resumption of security and civilian coordination with the Palestinians.”

Gantz added, in his tweet, on Monday evening, that he told the UN envoy that “Israel is ready to reach a settlement and improve the conditions of the residents of Gaza Strip if we reach understandings on a long-term truce and returning our sons [Israeli prisoners of war held in Gaza] home.”

Hamas did not provide a response.

Gaza, with a population of 2 million, has been under a hermetic Israeli siege since 2006, when the Palestinian group Hamas won the democratic legislative elections in occupied Palestine. Since then, Israel has carried out numerous bombing campaigns and several major wars, that resulted in the death of thousands of people. 

Earlier this week, the WHO warned that Gaza’s healthcare system is near collapse as a result of Israel’s stifling siege and the rise in coronavirus cases.

  1. Definitely it is good on some manner. It is imperative to secure the safety and life of citizens living on the Gaza, but there must also be a permanent solution to deal with the rapid increase in unemployment in Gaza. It is necessary to take some concrete steps towards fulfilling the fundamental rights of the people of Gaza and their livelihood needs by talking to each other. In my view, nothing can be solved through the path of terror, so we should try to solve it without violence.
