Neither is rooting out Hamas, so I really wonder if how they mean to resolve the problem. I don't think they'd consider sending in an international military force workable. They'd be regarded as occupiers either and the whole thing would collapse sooner or later anyway.
Hamas could end like it is in the West Bank. An international peacekeeping force acting on behalf of the Palestinian Authority could be seen as legitimate by Gazans.
