Hamas killed about 1,200 people in an attack on Israel on Oct. 7, which had widespread implications. Israel retaliated with a deadly military response in the Gaza Strip, resulting in over 20,000 Palestinian deaths and a humanitarian crisis. This has prompted criticism from human rights groups, humanitarian organizations, and the United Nations. The Biden administration, focusing on democratic values, has chosen to support Ukraine and Israel in their battles, but is facing pushback from progressive Democrats and global south countries. The conflict has also brought attention to Iranian influence in the region, as well as causing rifts in the United States. Foreign Policy has been analyzing the conflict and has identified articles that offer different perspectives on the issue. These articles delve into the motivations behind Hamas’s attack, the role of the United States in the conflict, the impact on families, global reactions, and the potential for peace and prevention of future wars.
