Israeli military commanders are planning to deploy additional troops in the Gaza Strip and the occupied West Bank, according to Israeli media reports.
According to Haaretz, the new plan is to expand the army’s presence in the West Bank and the Gaza strip.
It said the new force will be “strong enough to stop rocket attacks on Israel.”
The deployment of troops in Gaza and the West Gaza Strip was announced last week after Israeli forces killed six Palestinians in the area.
The military also announced last month that it had killed a Hamas operative and four members of the armed wing of the terror organization in an operation that also targeted an Islamic Jihad headquarters in the northern Gaza Strip.
The announcement was made on March 7, the day of the Gaza ceasefire.
The Gaza truce agreement was agreed to between Israel and Hamas.
It has seen the reopening of Gaza’s crossings with Egypt and Israel and the establishment of a buffer zone that will be managed by Egypt, Israel and Jordan.
