Israel-Gaza War

US Army Commander: Israel should have stayed in Gaza

A very senior commander in the American army claimed that "after clearing the territory, you have to go in and hold it in order to stabilize it. The Israelis did not do this and allowed the adversary to repopulate it."

The American Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Charles Brown, criticized the IDF's method of operation in northern Gaza, pointing out that it should have remained intrenched there instead of retreating and returning again. This is contrary to the opinion of the Biden administration, which supported the return of civilians to the area.

"The question about northern Gaza...When you really have to go in and clear every opponent you face, you have to go in and hold the territory, you have to stabilize it. The Israelis did not do this by leaving the territory after the fighting, they did not hold and thus allowed the adversary to inhabit it again and this caused a greater challenge for the Israeli army," he was quoted as saying.
