Israeli forces preparing to invade the Palestinian Gaza Strip have no intention of re-establishing a permanent presence in the Hamas stronghold, Israel’s former ambassador to the United Nations has said, as the under-siege coastal enclave withers under a pre-incursion air, land and sea bombardment.

Danny Danon says  Israel is preparing to “use a lot of force in order to restore deterrence and in order to ensure that Hamas is not capable of doing it again,” in reference to the group’s weekend infiltration and rocket attacks.

“In the long-term we have no intention to hold Gaza,” Danon said. “Our goal is not to govern Gaza. Our goal is to fight Hamas, and then hopefully a new regime will emerge to run the daily lives of the Palestinians in Gaza.” He added: “I don’t think there will be any alternative but to chase Hamas, to destroy their infrastructure.”
