Kirby: US against Israeli military occupation of Gaza

United States National Security Council Coordinator for Strategic Communications John Kirby stressed on Wednesday that Washington firmly opposes Israeli military occupation of Gaza and the permanent displacement of Palestinians from the enclave.

The statement was made in response to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's remark that Israel should attain security control of the Gaza Strip to keep the Strip demilitarized. Netanyahu also pointed out that the Israeli army should be the only force to operate the enclave.

"We do not support the reoccupation of Gaza," Kirby underscored during the regular press briefing at the White House.
