247 – Israeli National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir issued a direct response to US condemnation of the forced eviction of Palestinians from Gaza – ethnic cleansing that Israeli officials have acknowledged. In contrast to the statement of State Department spokesman Matthew Miller, Ben Gvir emphasized Israel's independence in making decisions regarding the state.

“I deeply appreciate the United States of America, but with all due respect, we are no longer a star on the American flag. The United States is our best friend, but first and foremost we will do what is good for the State of Israel,” the Israeli minister said.

Ben Gvir went on to say that the planned expulsion of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians from Gaza is a measure “aimed at allowing the residents of the Strip to return to their homes, live in safety and protect IDF soldiers.” He highlighted the supposed importance of ensuring security for both civilians and the Israeli army.

Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich had previously proposed discussing the revival of illegal settlements in the Gaza Strip and encouraged voluntary migration as a way to “completely change the reality in Gaza.”

In a statement published earlier, State Department spokesman Matthew Miller said: “The United States rejects recent statements by Israeli Ministers Bezalel Smotrich and Itamar Ben Gvir calling for the resettlement of Palestinians outside Gaza. This rhetoric is inflammatory and irresponsible. They must stop immediately.” . “.
