The Israel Defense Forces is establishing a new "Depth Corps Force" to coordinate and execute multidisciplinary missions far from Israel's borders, Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz announced on Thursday. "The primary task of the Corps will be to extend joint IDF operations into the strategic depth," the army said in a statement.

It has become almost axiomatic for Western leaders who are aware of Israel's acute military vulnerability to suggest that international forces be deployed to address the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It has even been suggested that the IDF withdraw from strategically vital parts of the West Bank, like the Jordan Valley, and instead let international forces take their place. This was in fact proposed in the past by General Jim Jones, President Barack Obama's first national security adviser.
