The Atlantic Council’s Scowcroft Middle East Security Initiative invites you to a hybrid panel on Monday, October 16, from 12:00 – 1:30 pm ET. The discussion will feature expert takes for the “Israel-Hamas War: The ground, information, and multilateral environment ahead.”

Hamas’ horrific terrorist attack has shaken all of Israel into action. There’s still much we don’t know when it comes to what direction the conflict will take, and whether it will remain contained to Israel and Hamas or spread to become a multifront war.

Israel’s likely ground campaign and battle for control of the narrative in the information space will drive how regional and global states engage with parties to the conflict in the months ahead.

This conversation will take place at the Atlantic Council’s headquarters and will be broadcast on Zoom, Twitter, and Facebook. Register below to attend in person or to join us online. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with information on how to attend. The event is open to members of the press and will be on the record.
