‘EU powers propose Gaza rehabilitation in exchange for disarmament’

Germany, France and Britain have proposed an initiative that would oversee the rehabilitation of the Gaza Strip in exchange for the disarmament of Hamas.

The initiative, which was presented to national security adviser Yossi Cohen by representatives of the EU powers in Jerusalem yesterday, seeks to rebuild destroyed areas of the Gaza Strip, while preventing terrorist organizations operating in the coastal enclave from re-arming, Haaretz reports.

International supervision will reportedly guarantee that the groups do not re-arm.
