The recent 11-day conflict between Hamas and Israel and tensions between Palestinians and Israelis in the West Bank have reinvigorated international attention to the longstanding conflict in the Middle East.
Officials from European countries, the United States and the Arab world have voiced fresh concerns over the violence with many re-confirming their support for the two-state solution and pledging to assist with humanitarian aid and reconstruction efforts in the heavily bombarded Gaza Strip.
International and regional stakeholders are yet to propose concrete action to addressing the root causes of the conflict while relations between Israelis and Palestinians continue to deteriorate and the probability of further hostilities remains high.
In this webinar, part of the Middle East and North Africa Programme’s online events series, the Palestinian ambassador to the United Kingdom, HE Dr Husam Zomlot, shares his perspectives on the implications of the recent conflict for Israeli-Palestinian relations going forward. He also discusses the international response to the conflict and what international stakeholders, particularly the UK, can do to prevent future violence and work with both sides towards a peaceful and fair solution to the conflict.
The event will be livestreamed on the Middle East and North Africa Programme’s Facebook page.
