Mideast Strategic security challenges amid COVID19

The corona contagion overshadows all other issues across the Middle East, as is the case globally. And while all other matters pertaining to the security situation in the Levant and beyond may have been marginalized in the public’s consciousness – they continue to pose challenges to local and major actors, alike.

In today’s program we will discuss the situation in Israel’s northern war-torn neighbor, where misery started long before the global plague; and is unfortunately expected to persist long after the coronavirus will has been subdued. Guests Dr. Eran Lerman vice president of the Jerusalem Institute of Strategy and Security and a lecturer at Shalem College, and Dr. Nir Boms, Research Fellow at the Moshe Dayan Center, Tel Aviv University. Analyst Amir Oren. Host Jonathan Hessen.
