JINSA Gaza Conflict Assessment Featured in USA Today 

"A study of the 2014 Gaza war by senior retired U.S. military officers and academics commissioned by the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs noted that Hamas intentionally placed civilians in jeopardy as a tactical enabler, knowing that either Israel would call off attacks or bear the blame for any innocents caught in the crossfire. The report concluded that Hamas "weaponized" the law of armed conflict, exploiting Israel's concern for non-combatants to its advantage, knowing they would never be held to account."
