Israel's Pledged Security Control Over Gaza: What Could It Look Like?
"I would assume that Israel will take care of that part of maintaining the security, because we have to remember that there are a lot of things that should be done. These include rehabilitation and repopulating Gaza citizens back to their homes or finding solutions for those who cannot go back to their homes because they have been demolished, as well as providing governmental services and all those things," Melamed said.
"This is something that Israel can be part of," he said, referring to today’s Islamic-Arab summit in Riyad, where participants could discuss taking care of "their brothers, the Palestinians."
He stressed that minimizing "the damage and the threat to the civilians in that situation" is a significant thing, which will be "one aspect of the relationship between Israel and Gaza population in the context of the security measurement."
"There should be, as I said before, an international and regional framework that will address the whole situation in the Gaza Strip. And as part of that, there should be a very decisive, proactive action to make sure that Hamas will not be able to become yet again a relevant player," the analyst concluded.
