Israel withdrew all its forces from the southern Gaza Strip

Israeli forces withdrew almost all of their forces from the southern Gaza Strip on Sunday. A military spokesman said a battalion was still stationed there. The latter is responsible for monitoring the “Netzarim Corridor”, a road that separates the north and south of the Palestinian border.

After being concentrated in the north of the Gaza Strip after the October 7 offensive, the fight against Hamas has moved to the city of Khan Yunis, south of the enclave. Israeli forces have been there for four months. In recent times, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has repeatedly threatened to occupy the town of Rafah near the border with Egypt.

Negotiations for a ceasefire in Gaza resumed this weekend in Cairo. According to US media, the head of the CIA, Bill Burns, will meet with the head of the Israeli Mossad, David Barnia, and officials from Egypt and Qatar.

Israeli and Hamas representatives will visit the Egyptian capital on Sunday, along with Mr Burns and the Qatari foreign minister.
