IDF: After disengagement Gaza Strip may become "a terrorist entity where anarchy prevails"

IDF: After disengagement Gaza Strip may become "a terrorist entity where
anarchy prevails"

Sharon's Home Within Rocket Range After Gaza Withdrawal

[Translation thanks to Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs DAILY ALERT]

Detailed IDF planning documents list 13 possible security threats that may
arise after the disengagement from Gaza.

Palestinians currently fire rockets from deep within Gaza, but after the
withdrawal they will be able to shoot from just inside the security fence,
sending rockets deeper inside Israel - even to reach the prime minister's
home, located just beyond Sderot.

Additional threats listed include Palestinian snipers targeting Israeli
farmers beyond the fence; rocket fire at western Negev kibbutzim; attacks
against IDF patrols along the fence; and kidnapping and holding soldiers
inside Gaza.

Further possible dangers include entry of terrorists into Israel via
underground tunnels or ladders, by sea, or using gliders.

The greatest threats are seen to be Palestinian acquisition of anti-aircraft
missiles and long-range rockets.

The IDF disengagement plan states the need to prepare for the possibility
that the Gaza Strip will become "a terrorist entity where anarchy prevails."

Thus, in parallel to withdrawal plans, the IDF is also preparing for the
possibility that it may be required to re-enter Gaza.
