In light of Israeli fears of the situation erupting in the occupied West Bank, the Israeli “Wala” website revealed that the occupation army decided to reduce the size of its forces in Gaza, and transfer some of them to the West Bank to replace regular army forces there.
The website said that Army Chief of Staff Herzi Halevy decided that the combat forces would leave the Gaza Strip and be transferred to “operational duties in the West Bank,” to replace the forces of regular soldiers stationed there.
The website did not specify details about the forces that were transferred from Gaza to the West Bank, nor the reasons for this decision, but Israeli media reports indicated that this move aims to give rest periods to the forces who work for long periods in the West Bank, against the backdrop of the ongoing security tensions.
In recent weeks, the Israeli army announced the transfer of forces from the Gaza Strip to the West Bank.
