While the United States is not actively participating in the hostilities in Gaza, it provides billions of dollars in assistance to the Israeli military every year—more than any other country in the world. Five months into the war, with rampant destruction of civilian infrastructure and a shocking number of civilian casualties, what responsibility does the United States have to ensure that its military assistance is not used to commit serious violations of international law? Join us for our continued discussion of the legal framework for the war in Gaza, with a focus on U.S. law and policy on civilian harm and arms transfers to Israel.
