Israel's Legal Obligations to Gaza after the Pullout

5 Pages Posted: 9 Feb 2007 Last revised: 19 Aug 2015


This paper explores Israel's legal obligations to Gaza in the wake of the Israeli pullout from the territory in September 2005. The paper argues that obligations under both the international law of occupation and the Israel-Palestinian Authority interim agreements continue to exist for Israel. The pullout may have altered the political dynamic in the Middle East but legally it has changed nothing.
