MEF & AJU Present: Israel’s 7 Fronts- Gaza
Monday June 3, 2024 at 11:00am Pacific time | 2:00pm Eastern time

Examine the recent actions, regional ambitions, and strategic implications of Tehran’s aggressive expansion and its threat to Israel.

This is part 3 of our 7-part series.

Tehran not only dominates four Arabic-speaking countries (Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Yemen) but has reached new levels of aggression in the past half-year, starting with the Oct. 7 atrocity and followed by the bombing of Pakistan, impeding commerce in the Red Sea, and a drone and missile attack on Israel. Khamenei aspires to build a “Ring of Fire” around Israel, mobilizing seven territories working together to bring about Israel’s destruction. How successful is this plan? Does the sum add up to more than the parts? How can Israel most effectively respond?

Come together with the Middle East Forum and American Jewish University for an illuminating seven-part series exploring Israel’s multifaceted challenges across seven distinct fronts.
