Israeli minister Gantz fiercely promises resignation due to absence of comprehensive post-war strategy

Israeli cabinet minister Benny Gantz is ready to quit if Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu doesn’t set a post-war plan for Gaza by June 8. Gantz wants six strategic goals, including ending Hamas rule and setting up an international civilian administration in Gaza.

Gantz warned Netanyahu against leading the nation astray by choosing fanaticism over national interests. Netanyahu, however, dismissed Gantz’s words, labeling them as defeatist.

The political split over the war’s direction intensifies as fighting continues in Gaza. Israeli forces push further into Jabalia while Gantz and Defense Minister Gallant urge Netanyahu to clarify Israel’s plans for Gaza.

Gallant stresses the need for a clear stance to avoid increased security risks. Netanyahu’s government is divided over the necessity of maintaining military control in Gaza to combat Hamas effectively.

Gantz’s speech emphasizes the need for unity and responsibility in Israel’s actions. He also calls for the return of hostages, displaced Palestinians, and normalization of relations with Saudi Arabia.

Netanyahu believes meeting Gantz’s requests would result in disaster for Israel. The war cabinet was formed after Hamas attacked Israeli communities, leading to casualties and hostage-taking.

The IDF’s chief of staff urges Netanyahu to plan for the aftermath of the conflict. Recent military actions in Gaza have raised doubts about the efficacy of the government’s strategy.

Gantz proposes an international administration to govern Gaza temporarily and lays the groundwork for future leadership. The IDF clashes with Palestinian groups in Jabalia, leading to casualties on both sides.

Hamas accuses Israel of indiscriminate attacks on civilians while Israel defends its actions as necessary for security. Evacuation orders are issued, and Israeli forces target Hamas’ strongholds in Rafah.

UNRWA expresses concern for the displaced Palestinians in Gaza, calling for safe passage and protection. President Biden’s adviser heads to Israel to discuss the conflict’s humanitarian impact and the need to protect civilians in Rafah.
