Israel Committee presents:
On the Brink of War: Israeli-Gaza Tensions, Repeated

Guest speaker: Luba Levin-Banchick
Why are there constant tensions and repeated wars between Israel and Gaza? With a focus on the most recent developments in the Israeli-Gaza conflict, this talk will address the series of recurrent confrontations between Israel and Gaza during the past ten years. Drawing lessons learned from these past rounds of violence, the presentation will assess the likelihood of a new round of escalation along the Israeli Southern border.
Luba Levin-Banchick is a political scientist and historian. She studies the evolution of conflict and peace in contemporary international relations of the Middle East.
