Gallant’s Four Corner Plan for Gaza

Gallant’s “four corner” plan includes:

  • Hamas would no longer control Gaza. Israel would retain overall security control of Gaza.
  • A multi-national force would take charge of rebuilding the territory. Under Gallant’s ‘day after’ plan, Arab and European nations – along with other Western ‘allies’ – would be expected to oversee the rebuilding of Gaza.
  • Neighboring Egypt would also have an unspecified role to play under the plan.
  • Limited Palestinian rule: Palestinians would be responsible for running the territory, with the condition that there will be no hostile actions or threats against the State of Israel.

The plan was not discussed in any detail in the cabinet meeting. PM Netanyahu has not publicly commented on it. He had said the war in Gaza may last several months, until Hamas and its terror infrastructure is destroyed.

While Gallant’s proposal is more practical for Israel current affairs than some suggested by his cabinet colleagues, it would be rejected by Palestinian leaders who insist Gazans must take full control of running their own territory.

Effect Of Gallant’s Plan on Other Israel Current Affairs

Gallant’s plan also outlined how IDF aims to proceed in the next phase of the war in Gaza: “IDF would take a more targeted approach in the north of the Gaza Strip, where operations will include raids, demolishing tunnels and air and ground strikes. In the south, the Israeli military would continue to try to track down Hamas leaders and rescue Israeli hostages.”

The total number of people killed in Gaza since the start of Israel’s retaliatory campaign has reached more than 22,800 by Thursday – comprising almost 1% of the enclave’s 2.3 million population, the Hamas-run health ministry said.

Israel’s offensive started after Hamas gunmen launched a surprise attack on southern Israel on 7 October, killing 1,200 people, most of them civilians, and taking about 240 people hostage.
