The Risk of Regional Escalation

January 16 @ 1:00 pm

For months, J Street has warned that the Biden Administration must place significant focus on preventing the Israel-Hamas war from spiraling into a catastrophic regional war.

Concerningly – with the Houthis mounting a shipping blockade in the Red Sea, Hezbollah attacking Israel in the north, Israel striking targets in Lebanon, ongoing attacks on US bases in Iraq, and violence continuing to boil over in the West Bank – the risk of escalation on those fronts continues to rise.

We’re thrilled to be joined by Dr. Gil Murciano and Mona Yacoubian for a conversation with our own expert on the region, J Street Director of Policy Dr. Debra Shushan. Our guests will discuss a path away from escalation and the relevant actors and their relevant motivations in the region.
