Blinken reaffirms opposition to Israeli ‘reoccupation’ of Gaza, reduction of territory

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken reaffirms Washington’s opposition to any reoccupation of the Gaza Strip by Israel, as well as any reduction of its size.

Blinken’s remarks are in response to a plan for post-war Gaza put forward by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in which the Israeli army would have “indefinite freedom” to operate throughout Gaza.

“Gaza… cannot be a platform for terrorism. There should be no Israeli reoccupation of Gaza. The size of Gaza territory should not be reduced,” Blinken says in Buenos Aires.
