Yaakov Katz’s book, Shadow Strike, tells the never-before-told inside story of how Israel stopped Syria from becoming a global nuclear nightmare and its far-reaching implications. Hear Katz tell the story of the espionage, political courage, military might, and psychological warfare behind Israel’s daring operation to stop one of the greatest known acts of nuclear proliferation.

Before Katz took on the role of editor-in-chief of the Jerusalem Post, he spent two years as a senior policy advisor to Israel’s Minister of Economy and Minister of Diaspora Affairs.
