The West Bank is facing an uptick in violence, with clashes between Israeli forces and Palestinian militants becoming increasingly commonplace in major Palestinian cities. To assess this period of unrest, Tel Aviv-based journalist Neri Zilber hosts Shira Efron (Diane and Guilford Glazer Foundation Director of Policy Research, Israel Policy Forum) and Dan Rothem (Senior Policy Advisor, Herbert Kelman Institute for Conflict Transformation) for a discussion on Israel’s current policy toward the Palestinian Authority, the potential for further instability during the upcoming Jewish holidays, and what the U.S. and the international community can do to prevent the situation from further deteriorating.
Note: This episode was recorded on Monday, September 19, before the suspected terror attack on Tuesday in Holon that claimed the life of an elderly Israeli woman.
