Israel’s Minister of Internal Security said on Monday that plans to occupy the Gaza Strip are on the table for the Cabinet to consider, Quds Net News has reported. However, Gilad Erdan told Israeli military radio that the country prefers calm and the possibility of reaching a deal that guarantees security for all Israelis.

Nevertheless, he suggested that occupying Gaza would give Israel a better chance to maintain such calm.

He added:

“We must be ready to pay the costs of such a step.”

The extreme right-wing minister warned Hamas leaders not to cross any red lines. He pointed out that doing so would see Israel going back to its assassination policy.

Erdan said that he blames Hamas for the rockets fired from Gaza as it is the de facto government of the enclave.

Our Vision For Liberation: Engaged Palestinian Leaders & Intellectuals Speak Out


  1. I daily pray that who ever goes up against the Palestine Resistance Movement in Gaza goes up against the Wrath of God. Just like I pray that who ever goes up against SAA in Assad Syria goes up against the Wrath of God. Who ever helps support the Palestine Resistance Movement & SAA have God’s Blessings. I think of the brave Hero of Russia “Roman Filippov as being a strong guardian angel.

  2. I am from Vancouver,Canada and I wanted to say that Gaza has been in the lead in the fight against the occupation of Palestine by Israeli Forces.The people of Gaza got the support of the majority of people in the world in this fight and the support will continue until all of Palestine is freed of Occupation.It is Israel that is the problem not Gaza.The Occupation of Palestine has got to Go.
