The Israeli-Hamas war has claimed the lives of more than 1,400 Israelis and 5,000 Gazans and a worsening humanitarian crisis in Gaza threatens the lives of thousands more. Actions of Iranian proxy groups threaten to spread the violence further.

In the midst of the ongoing conflict, the United States is working with its Arab allies to prevent further escalation. Jordan, a long-standing U.S. partner, plays an important role in facilitating regional diplomacy and humanitarian aid to Palestinian civilians.

Please join the CSIS Middle East Program in conversation with H.E. Mr. Ayman Safadi, Jordan’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates, on the ongoing crisis and potential avenues for peace.

This event is made possible through general support to CSIS.
