Israel-Hamas conflict

The United States national security adviser is set to meet with the Palestinian president on Friday to discuss the potential role of Palestinian security forces in Gaza after the war. These discussions stem from a senior U.S. official’s suggestion to potentially reestablish the Palestinian forces that were ousted by Hamas in 2007.

This idea, one among several, represents the first concrete indication of the U.S.’s plan for Gaza’s security post-conflict, assuming Israel fulfills its goal
