The recent eruption of violence in Lebanon and Gaza has become a growing concern for Washington. The renewed violent internal struggle between Hamas and Fatah in Gaza bordered on civil war before leading to deadly rocket attacks against Israel. The current violence in northern Lebanon marks the deadliest clashes involving the army since the country’s civil war. The escalation of fighting between the Lebanese military and the Syrian-backed terrorist organization known as Fatah al Islam threatens Lebanon’s security, fledging democracy and even its recent independence from Syrian domination. But what are the greater repercussions for the region? Will the situation in Lebanon and Gaza spill over into a greater confrontation between Israel and other Arab countries or remain localized conflicts? To examine these and other related questions, Hudson Institute’s Center for Middle East Policy is pleased to host a panel of distinguished experts.
