In the background of the security system's debate over the outline of the arrangement process, as well as the possibilities for economic benefits to Hamas in the framework of a long-term series, the headquarters work in the Area for Coordination of Government Activities in the Occupied Territories (DCO) came to an end, regarding the entry of thousands of Palestinian workers from the Gaza Strip into Israel.
According to a security source, "To increase the amount of workers in Gaza and add money to the Gaza Strip, there is a solution just under the nose in the form of a 5,000 Palestinian worker's permit for agriculture and construction work in Israel. Each worker will earn at least NIS 7,000 a month in Israel - which means they will put NIS 35 million into Gaza. NIS a quarter billion a year (based on 5,000 workers). " Today, the average monthly wages in Gaza range around 1,000 shekels.
"The MPC believes that it will do wonders for the Gaza economy and also for the security situation," the official continued. "The family circles will do everything to keep the permit that earns them a living. This solution requires a government decision on the issue - and in the IDF and the government's coordination unit in convinced areas that it is time to take this step - in order to advance the process of regulation against Gaza. Incidentally, the Association of Land Builders can absorb them immediately for work. "

The Shin Bet opposes the entry of thousands of Palestinian workers because of the magnitude of the risk, but the organization has proposed an alternative in the form of increasing the quota of merchants from the Gaza Strip as economic generators, with which the security risk is much lower.
Following the ISA's opposition, the security official emphasized that "Erez Crossing is one of the best and smartest terminals in the world. It is equipped with very high technological capabilities and almost impossible to smuggle weapons through it. ”The full position of the MPC will be presented to the political echelon with the progress in the arrangement with Hamas.More in Walla!

In recent years (including 2018 and 2019) there has been a fixed quota for 5,000 merchants in Gaza who are allowed to leave the Gaza Strip to Israel and Judea and Samaria. Security officials have recently made claims that some are in violation of the permit given to them as traders and workers in Israel, as construction workers, especially in the Ashkelon area and the surrounding area.
The MPC commented: "We will emphasize that all other permits are examined individually and issued subject to the criteria stated on the MAP website and subject to security clearance."
