Why has Israel started an operation in Jenin? Is Iran spreading its tentacles deep into Israel?

On this week’s Our Middle East, host Dan Diker speaks with Arab Affairs expert Yoni Ben Menachem to give an inside perspective on the IDF’s current operation in Jenin.

They talk about:

  • The buildup of terrorist forces connected to Iran in the West Bank and how previous governments should have acted against it
  • Iran’s goal in supporting various factions within and on the border of Israel
  • What the IDF needs to do in order to be a successful operation.
