“Day After War” | The news is forcing Netanyahu to cancel the debate

Israeli media reported yesterday, Thursday, that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu canceled discussions on the future of Gaza after the war due to pressure from his ruling coalition partners.

The Israel Broadcasting Authority and Channel 12 report that “Netanyahu decided at the last minute not to discuss the post-war issue in Gaza at the war council held on Thursday evening,” referring to Tel Aviv's possible plan. The war that had been going on for about 3 months ended.

Both channels pointed out that “partners in the governing coalition put great pressure on Netanyahu to cancel this discussion within the War Council”.

Israeli National Defense Minister Itamar Ben Gvir said the war cabinet was mandated to manage military operations, not discuss the next day's politics.

Ben Gvir added that the next day's discussion in Gaza was one of the tasks of the mini-cabinet and did not belong to the war cabinet.

The “Religious Zionism” party, led by Finance Minister Bezalel Smodrich, and the “Jewish Army” party, led by Ben Gvir, announced their opposition to the above discussion under the pretext of “lack of jurisdiction of the War Council”. Reported in Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper.

Two ministers – who are not members of the war council – have threatened more than once that if the war on Gaza ends before the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) is eliminated, Israeli prisoners and detainees will walk out of the government and remove it. Freed in Gaza.

Netanyahu's plans

On several occasions, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said he wants “Israeli security control” over Gaza after the war.

In his previous statements, Netanyahu said, “The day after the war, Gaza must be militarized, and only one force can be responsible for that, and that is the Israeli army.”

He confirmed more than once that the Palestinian Authority categorically rejected taking over the duties of a government in the Gaza Strip after the war.

Netanyahu's statements in this regard contradict the US position, and the scenes drawn have sparked a dispute between him and US President Joe Biden.

Since last October 7, the Israeli army has been waging a devastating war on Gaza, and as of yesterday, Thursday, 21,320 people have died and 55,603 have been injured – most of them children and women – in a massive destruction of infrastructure and an unprecedented humanitarian disaster.
