College/University Student Recommended, High School Student Recommended, Israel

Israel continues to face numerous security challenges and opportunities. From the stagnating peace process to the Iranian threat, from Hezbollah to Hamas. This session will discuss the various issues on Israel's national security agenda from the perspective of a reserve lieutenant colonel in the Israel Defense Force (IDF). This workshop will give you basic facts and a crash course from an IDF Spokesman’s Office veteran on how Israel represents itself. (Please note that the session is not an official representation of the IDF.)
