In Israel’s Second Front, made for PBS FRONTLINE, Ramita Navai goes on the ground to investigate rising support for militant groups, including Hamas,since the Oct. 7 attack, Israel’s ongoing military campaign in the West Bank and the implications for a region on edge. “All eyes are on the war in Gaza, but the West Bank – home to several million Palestinians and a half-million Israeli settlers – is the most volatile and violent it’s been for decades,” says Navai.
Navai speaks to Palestinians and Israelis – including current and former officials – about the fraught situation in the West Bank, which many people fear could explode into a new front in thecurrent war. She speaks with members of militant groups including Hamas abouttheir ambitions, investigates increasing public support for Hamas in the WestBank, and documents Israeli Defense Force raids against militants in denselypopulated areas.
