Since its establishment in 1948, Israel has faced numerous security challenges. Ongoing threats to the country's security could potentially lead to a serious crisis or even escalate to a war. Israel's greatest concerns are Iran's nuclear program, Hizballah in Lebanon, and Hamas in the Gaza Strip. In addition, there has been unrest in the West Bank, incidents in the Golan Heights, fighting in Sinai, and uncertainty about Jordan.
