Israel allegedly does not want troops on Palestinian side of buffer zone

Israel does not plan to deploy forces on the Palestinian side of the possible security buffer zone, Times of Israel reported on Sunday citing an anonymous official. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu allegedly laid out the idea of a buffer zone to United States Secretary of State Antony Blinken earlier this week, although the US has rejected the plan.

"The defense establishment is talking about some kind of security buffer on the Gaza side of the border so that Hamas cannot gather military capabilities close to the border and surprise Israel again," the Israeli source told Times of Israel. "It is a security measure, not a political one. We do not intend to remain on the Gaza side of the border."
