Under Fire: How the Latest Crisis in Israel-Palestine Unfolded on the Ground EveryDay Voices

    • Society & Culture

Earlier this month, the specter of unjust evictions in Sheikh Jarrah led to Israeli settler attacks on Palestinians, incendiary balloons and rockets from Hamas, Palestinian attacks on Jewish Israelis, and a heavy response from Israeli military and police. While Israel and Hamas have agreed to a ceasefire, hundreds of civilians are dead, many thousands in Gaza are displaced, millions are traumatized, and ethnic tensions inside Israel have boiled over into violence—threatening the future of Arab-Jewish coexistence.

To help us understand this crisis, we’re joined today by two guests who experienced it far too intimately: Khaled Gannam from the Gaza Strip, and Tamar Cohen-Mordechai from southern Israel.

Our interview with Khaled begins at 4:37.

Our interview with Tamar begins at 43:19.
