Watch Webinar – Gaza War Update 5/16/24

Following Israel beginning limited combat operations in eastern Rafah, President Biden stated that his administration would not supply Israel with offensive weapons like bombs and artillery shells if it conducts a major military offensive in Rafah. Meanwhile, Israel announced the start of a targeted operation in northern Gaza’s Jabaliya in recent days. See below for a situational update on these events and broader war with IDF MG (ret.) Yaacov Ayish, JINSA’s Julian and Jenny Josephson Senior Vice President for Israeli Affairs, and JINSA Distinguished Fellow IDF MG (ret.) Yaakov Amidror. Ari Cicurel, JINSA’s Assistant Director of Foreign Policy, moderated the conversation.

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.
