In this week’s review, we dive into the death of Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi and Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian in a helicopter crash, examining the implications for Iran’s internal politics and international relations. We also discuss the key development on the legal front following the groundbreaking move by the International Criminal Court seeking to issue arrest warrants for key Israeli and Hamas leaders, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defence Minister Yoav Gallant.

As the number of resignations continues to grow both in Washington and Israel as a result of Netanyahu’s handling of the war on Gaza, we discuss Benny Gantz’s ultimatum and demand for a clear post-war governance plan for Gaza, while discussing the US’s shifting focus towards helping Israel declare a semblance of victory.

In light of the developments in Israel and Gaza, we look at the timing of US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan’s visit to Saudi Arabia and Israel.
