This episode is part of an ongoing series of conversations.
You’ve seen the images, the headlines, and the reactions on social media as Israeli warplanes launched airstrikes in Gaza City.
Last week, during the height of the latest Israeli-Palestinian fighting, we had a show to discuss the complicated history of the region.
There's now been a ceasefire, but we want to revisit and expand the conversation.
And we want to continue to find balance and to have dialogue — to allow for more voices, perspectives and information to help you understand the conflict from both sides, in as much as we can reasonably do within an hour.
So, today, it's "Discussing the Israeli-Palestinian conflict: A continuation."
How do we understand this conflict — one of the longest in modern history — and what is the future for resolution and stability in the region?
