About This Episode

As the Israel-Hamas war rages on, global protests have erupted following a Gaza Strip hospital explosion. The US embassy and Saudi Arabia have urged their citizens in Lebanon to leave amid clashes at the Israel-Lebanon border. Egypt is allowing the flow of aid into Gaza but its foreign ministry has also warned of consequences of Israeli escalation. Will the war remain a limited conflict or erupt into a larger Middle East war? Plus, the results of Poland’s recent election and what it means for the future of the country. The Council's Ivo Daalder examines these issues with Yasmeen Abutaleb, Stefan Kornelius, and Peter Spiegel on World Review.
