Watch Webinar: Lessons from Past Gaza Conflicts

Previous conflicts between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip (in 2021 and 2014), portend the operational, strategic, and political challenges that Israel is likely to face as it prepares what appears to be a ground offensive to, according to the Israeli security cabinet, “achieve the destruction of the military and governing capabilities of Hamas.” Watch JINSA experts Lt. Gen. (ret.) Thomas Trask and Lt. Col. (ret.) Geoffrey Corn, who have conducted assessments of those past conflicts, discuss what Israel will face in the days and weeks ahead and how the United States can support it.

The Jewish Institute for National Security of America (JINSA) is dedicated to educating Congressional, military and civilian national security decision-makers on American defense and strategic interests, primarily in the Middle East, the cornerstone of which is a robust U.S.-Israeli security cooperation. JINSA believes that a strong American military and national security posture is the best guarantor of peace and the survival of our values and civilization.
