An IDF Briefing – Multi-Arena General Strategic Assessment

Israel is facing today threats from multiple, new, and non-traditional fronts, many of which do not include a physical border with the state. These include non-state para-military organizations, sub-terranean infrastructure, cyber-threats and looming nuclear threats.

Join us for a briefing that evaluates current plans to build and increase the Israel Defense Forces’ ability to defend against these different fronts.

During this briefing we will learn about:

Potential threats and challenges that the IDF encounters
The means used by the IDF while facing the challenges and threats
The actions and means of terrorist organizations

Streamed live, the program will feature:

Lt. Col. Amnon Shefler


Naomi Reinharz
Chief Development Officer
America-Israel Friendship League
