The Israeli defence minister says that Once the war with Hamas is over, Israel will bring to an end its “responsibility” for life in the Gaza Strip.

During a briefing to parliament’s foreign affairs and defence committee, Yoav Gallant listed the severing of ties with the coastal enclave as one objective of Israel’s military campaign.

Gallant also outlined objectives of “the elimination of Hamas and destruction of both its military and governing capabilities” and the “creation of a new security reality in the region”, according to a statement.

Israel withdrew its troops and settlers from Gaza in 2005, though it retained control over its airspace, shared border and shoreline.
