The multi-front war against Israel

EMET webinar with Lt. Col. (Ret.) Sarit Zehavi

On the eve of Passover on April 5, Israel faced the most significant barrage of rocket attacks from Lebanon since the 2006 war. Some 34 rockets were launched towards Israel from the north. On top of that, six rockets were fired from Syria, with two falling over the border into Israel. In addition, with Ramadan and Passover coinciding, violent clashes took place at the Al-Aqsa mosque compound, and rockets were fired by Hamas from the Gaza Strip into southern Israel.

On top of that, Israel has faced a renewed wave of terrorist attacks on its civilians, resulting in the death of an Italian tourist, Alessandro Parini, 34, and three members of one family: Lucy Dee, 48, and her two daughters, Rina, 20, and Maia, 15.

How is Israel managing to handle this war on multiple fronts?

Here to answer this question, is Lt. Col. Sarit Zehavi of the Alma Research and Educational Center.
