Former IDF chief of staff Lt.-Gen. (res.) Gabi Ashkenazi said on Sunday that Israel will one day be forced to separate from the Palestinians "in one way or another," Israel Radio reported.

Speaking at a business conference in Tel Aviv, Ashkenazi said Israel must "outline the parameters for peace, including permanent borders, in order to see if the Palestinians will accept our conditions."

According to Ashkenazi, Israel will one day be "forced to separate from the Palestinians, in one way or another," adding that "time is not on our side."

Ashkenazi also said that Israel's relationship with the Palestinians is Israel's main concern, and not the UN decision to upgrade their status.
