About This Episode

The Israeli military expanded its offensive into southern Gaza, displacing many Palestinians who already fled northern Gaza. As the humanitarian crisis worsens, so does international criticism of Israel’s response. Republicans in the U.S. Senate block aid to Ukraine in protest over border security improvements. Plus, the rapid rise of A.I. and what lies ahead in 2024. The Council's Ivo Daalder hosts World Review with Ryan Heath and Giles Whittell for a discussion on these issues.
