Connecting in Crisis: Perspectives from Gaza and Jerusalem

Connecting in Crisis: Perspectives from Gaza and Jerusalem


This week dozens of Palestinians, including nine children, have been killed by an Israeli bombing in Gaza. This tragic event comes as the latest in a series of escalating acts of violence during he month of Ramadan as Palestinian communities have been threatened with forced displacement and increasingly restrictive treatment, particularly in Jerusalem.

In hopes of sharing how these events have impacted local communities, AFSC Gaza Program Coordinator Ali Abdal Bari joins AFSC Israel Program Director Sahar Vardi to discuss what has been unfolding and how AFSC is responding with Palestinian and Israeli partners as they push for a just and lasting peace. Jehad Abusalim, AFSC Education and Policy Associate for the US-based Palestine Advocacy Program, facilitates the conversation.
