Are Israel’s war aims achievable?

Despite mounting international criticism and a growing death toll, Israeli military operations against Hamas in Gaza are ongoing. Israel’s government continues to insist on the complete elimination of Hamas capacity in Gaza as a key war aim. But whether it can be eliminated, and if so at what cost, is an open question.
The panel of experts will cover key talking points, including:
  • Analysing the stance of key decision-makers within the national unity government.
  • Examining the impact of domestic opinion and of foreign states on decision-making, as well as the outlook and capacity of the Israel Defence Forces.
  • Aiming to provide a sense of the range of militarily achievable outcomes, and assess the political factors likely to favour some outcomes over others.

A discussion between:

  • Laura James, Deputy Director of Analysis and Senior Analyst, Middle East, Oxford Analytica
  • Giles Alston, Senior Analyst, North America, Oxford Analytica
  • Amos Harel, Military Correspondent and Defence Analyst for the Israeli newspaper Haaretz

Chair: Nick Redman, Director of Analysis, Oxford Analytica
