Several senior Israeli military leaders and leaders of the military police held a meeting recently to prepare scenarios for a possible reoccupation of the Gaza Strip and appointing a “military governor” should Israel decide to redeploy its army in the coastal region.Israeli Maariv reported on its website that the army prepared plans and agendas for a possible full occupation of the Gaza Strip should the security situation witness further deterioration as Israel’s military leaders believe that a war could take place with Syria and Lebanon in addition to the Gaza Strip.
The estimates pushed Israel to prepare several scenarios involving different military and security units.
Maariv said that the plans basically depend on invading main cities in the Gaza Strip and fully occupying them in order to deploy the army in the Gaza Strip once again and impose full military control on it.
