The war in Gaza is much more than a conflict between Israelis and Palestinians; it is part of a broader Iranian plan to undermine the American-led order in the Middle East. As 3,000 Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Hamas terrorists stormed over the border from Gaza and murdered 1,400 Israelis, Lebanese Hezbollah—another Iranian proxy—increased its pressure on Israel’s northern border. As Israel began its ground incursion, the Iranian-sponsored Houthis fired drones and missiles toward Israeli cities. Meanwhile, Iranian cutouts in Iraq and Syria have attacked American bases no fewer than 24 times since October 17.

Join Hudson’s Center for Peace and Security in the Middle East for a discussion between Distinguished Fellow Michael R. Pompeo, the seventieth US secretary of state, and Senior Fellow Michael Doran on the ongoing Israel-Hamas war’s place in the Iranian strategy to undermine the United States.
