After Iran fired more than 300 missiles and drones at Israel just weeks ago, and the Jewish state responded with a targeted strike on Iranian military sites, the Israeli people and the entire Western world have been waiting with bated breath for the next domino to fall in an increasingly volatile Middle East.

Israel — with the help of the U.S., U.K., France, Jordan, and according to some reports even Saudi Arabia — intercepted a remarkable 99% of the missiles and drones launched in Iran’s initial attack. But does the Islamic Republic have greater capabilities for a potential future assault? Why does the escalating confrontation between Iran and Israel matter so much to those two countries, the region, and the world?

Join American Society of the University of Haifa (ASUH) for a timely discussion with Dr. Thamar Eilam Gindin, an Iran expert and research fellow at University of Haifa’s Ezri Center for Iran and Persian Gulf Studies. The conversation will be moderated by Naomi Reinharz, Chief Executive Officer of ASUH.
