Israel has no intention of handing Gaza over to the Palestinian Authority once the war is over, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Saturday night. “The Palestinian Authority in its current form is not able to take responsibility for Gaza,” Netanyahu stated. He pointed out that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has yet to condemn the October 7 massacre that sparked the Gaza war. Netanyahu also mentioned that the PA has a policy of paying monthly stipends to terrorists and their families and educates its children to hate Jews. Furthermore, he emphasized that the IDF would retain military control of Gaza after the war. Netanyahu stressed that Israel won’t rest in its pursuit of eliminating Hamas.
