Virtual Event | Israel at War: Hamas Attack on Israel

Oct 12, 2023
10:00am to 11:00am ET


On October 7, 2023, Hamas launched an unprecedentedly sophisticated attack on Israel. Using thousands of rockets as cover, Hamas ground forces over-ran Israeli security forces, entered Israel, and rolled through Israeli communities, committing unspeakable atrocities to civilians and taking hostages back to Gaza. Reeling from the loss of life, Israel once again finds itself at war and posturing for an operation, the scope and scale of which is beyond any it has launched in recent decades.

On October 12, 2023 CNAS hosted a virtual event featuring a discussion with Danny Citrinowicz, Research Fellow of the Institute for National Security Studies, Jonathan Lord, Senior Fellow and Director of the Middle East Security Program at CNAS, and Carrie Cordero, Robert M. Gates Senior Fellow at CNAS, hosted by Richard Fontaine, Chief Executive Officer of CNAS.
