The Palestinian Government accuses the Israeli Prime Minister of trying to consolidate the total separation between the enclave and the West Bank
MADRID, 3 Dic. (EUROPA PRESS) -
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has promised to prevent any type of influence by the Palestinian Authority on the Gaza Strip when the military operation against the enclave and the Islamist Hamas movement ends, understanding that both entities are united in their commitment to destroy to the State of Israel.
"The Palestinian movement may be split in two," Netanyahu said in his press appearance last Saturday, "but, unfortunately for me, the rejection of the existence of Israel is a common element between both factions, so I am not going to commit the mistake of putting that entity in charge of Gaza because we are going to end up with the same result," he indicated in relation to the Palestinian Authority.
Gaza's medium-term political future still remains unclear. Israel, for the moment, is contemplating the establishment of a security zone within the enclave but the United States, its great ally, has already stated that it does not agree with this plan because, as the spokesman for the National Security Council, John Kirby, advanced, "Gaza must remain Palestinian land and cannot be reduced."
Official Israeli sources on condition of anonymity have explained to the 'Times of Israel' that this plan is still on the table. "Hamas cannot accumulate military capabilities on the border again and surprise us again," they indicated before clarifying that "this is strictly a security measure, not a political one" and guaranteeing that there will be no Israeli military on the side. border gazati.
Whatever the scenario, Netanyahu assures that the Palestinian Authority will not play any role. "They are people who pay murderers and who educate their children to hate Israel, to murder Jews and, ultimately, to make the State of Israel disappear," said the prime minister, before criticizing the Palestinian Authority. as "a defective mechanism and a terrible mistake."
"I am not going to deceive myself and allow the same element to govern Gaza, one that has expressed neither a desire for change nor a desire for reform, no matter how much our best friends propose it. The internal government of Gaza must undergo a radical process different," he concluded.
In contrast, the Palestinian Authority's Ministry of Foreign Affairs has responded to the prime minister's words by framing the entire Israeli military operation as an effort to consolidate the total separation that exists between Gaza and the West Bank, thus literally breaking in two the efforts to "materialize an independent Palestinian state, with East Jerusalem as its capital.
"Netanyahu and his war cabinet continue to beat the drums of war under false pretenses and pretexts, repeating like a broken record their unjustified attacks on the Palestinian National Authority and its leaders," the Ministry lamented in a statement published on the social network .
The Palestinian Authority thus understands "an attempt to establish separation between the West Bank and the Gaza Strip to attack and undermine the opportunity embodied by the independent Palestinian State with East Jerusalem as its capital."
