MEF & AJU Present: Israel's 7 Fronts- Iraq
Monday, June 17 at 11:00am PT | 2:00pm ET

This is part 5 of our 7-part series. 

Tehran not only dominates four Arabic-speaking countries (Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Yemen) but has reached new levels of aggression in the past half-year, starting with the Oct. 7 atrocity and followed by the bombing of Pakistan, impeding commerce in the Red Sea, and a drone and missile attack on Israel. Khamenei aspires to build a “Ring of Fire” around Israel, mobilizing seven territories working together to bring about Israel's destruction. How successful is this plan? Does the sum add up to more than the parts? How can Israel most effectively respond?

Join the joint Middle East Forum and the Ƶ for a seven-part series on Iran’s seven fronts versus the Jewish state.
