A Briefing on the Latest Developments
As the death toll in Gaza climbs over 65 since the start of Israel's current military operation and fears of an Israeli ground invasion loom, we will speak to Dr. Mustafa Barghouthi, a member of the PLO’s Central Council, about the Palestinian national strategy, the impact of the current violence on the reconciliation deal between Fatah and Hamas, and where we go from here vis-a-vis Palestinian-Israeli relations.
We will also hear from Brad Parker of Defence for Children International (DCI) about the latest humanitarian developments in Gaza, as well as in Jerusalem and the West Bank, where Palestinian children have been swept up in rising levels of Israeli violence.
During the briefing we will also discuss the beating of 15-year-old American citizen Tariq Khdeir, as well as the murder of his cousin, 16-year-old Mohammad Abu Khdeir.
The call will be moderated by Yousef Munayyer, executive director of the Jerusalem Fund and Palestine Center in
