After three months of attacks and occupation by the Israeli Defence Force, Gaza “has become a place of death and despair.” The invasion was a response to the brutal massacre of Israelis by Hamas on October 7, 2023. Today, nearly 27,000 Palestinians have been killed and more than two million people are experiencing acute and sustained humanitarian stress. Hospitals are overwhelmed, infectious diseases are spreading, there is mounting risk of famine, and daily life is filled with extreme danger, fear and trauma.

This is the third installment in a series of webinars addressing various aspects of the Israel/Palestine war, co-sponsored by the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies and Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO). Join us on Wednesday, February 29, 2024, from 12:30 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. ET.
