It is useful to start by distinguishing between “security coordination,” which pertains to exchange of information with Israel about armed resistance against the occupation; and “civil coordination,” which relates to easing citizens’ lives through ensuring freedom of movement of people and goods, fighting crime, controlling diseases, etc. It is also important to note that “security coordination” formed part of the Oslo Accords, and it has been enforced indirectly in Gaza through various ceasefire agreements from 2003 to the present.
