Israeli Occupation Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu presented his plan regarding post-war policy in the Gaza Strip to the security cabinet on Thursday night, as reported by Yedioth Ahronoth.

The one-page document outlines key principles Netanyahu has been advocating since the outset of the war. It proposes the installation of "local officials" not linked to "terrorism" to administer the Strip instead of Hamas.

Netanyahu's office statement indicates that the document is based on widely accepted principles and will serve as a basis for future discussions on managing Gaza after the war.

Key elements of the plan include a commitment to continue the military operation until specific objectives are met, such as dismantling the military capabilities of Hamas, securing the release of captives taken on October 7, and eliminating security threats originating from Gaza.

The document also states that in the near future, the Israeli Occupation will uphold a security buffer zone on the Palestinian border, implement a "southern closure" to prevent "terrorist activities along the Egyptian-Gaza border", and maintain security control over the entire region west of the Jordan River.

Furthermore, the document advocates for replacing the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees (UNRWA) with accountable international aid organizations, citing purported involvement of UNRWA employees in terrorist activities.

Netanyahu also reiterated his opposition to the establishment of a Palestinian state along the 1967 borders without direct negotiations and without any preconditions.
