Terrorism Threat to Israel

Terrorism Threat to Israel

Since its independence in 1948, Israel has been embroiled in a protracted conflict with its neighbors. While the conflict has taken on many forms, from full-scale wars to pointed operations, there has been a constant threat facing Israel, taking on the form of terrorism. Today, Israel is still facing this continuous threat originating both within its borders and from other regional actors such as Hamas, Hezbollah and Global Jihad in places like the Gaza Strip, the Sinai Peninsula, Lebanon and Syria.

With constantly evolving methods of operation by these groups, Israel has had to stay ahead of the game. This workshop will discuss the current terrorism threats facing Israel as described, as well as the recent use of pyro-terrorism and tunnel warfare, and will discuss the challenges that stem from this threat including border protection and agricultural destruction. Panel experts will also provide a number of recommendations to try and mitigate the threat.
