When Israel occupied the Palestinian territories, it became LEGALLY and MORALLY responsible for the welfare of the people within those territories. Withdrawing settlers from Gaza does not negate that legal and moral responsibility. As long as the IDF is able to enter Gaza at will, the airspace is controlled by Israel, and nothing enters the territory except by Israel's consent, it is still occupied, and Israel is responsible for the lives and welfare of the populace -- who are now "protect persons" under international law.
