Click here for a transcript of the call

Earlier this week, in response to weeks of increased violence against Israeli civilians and an escalation in rocket attacks from the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip, Israel launched Operation Protective Edge. Over the past few days, hundreds of rockets have been launched at Israel from the Gaza Strip. Gazans living near the border with Israel have been warned to evacuate, a move that is usually a precursor to a ground operation.

Listen in as The Israel Project hosts a conference call July 11th with Israeli Ambassador to the United States, Ron Dermer. Ambassador Dermer will discuss this week\'s developments in Israel and potential scenarios for the coming weeks.
