Abstract

This paper addresses the issue of the impact that armed conflicts have on capital markets. It focuses on the recent Israeli military offensive in the Gaza Strip launched in late 2008 and concluded in early 2009. The paper examines the effects of this armed conflict on the return and volatility of the general index of the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange (TASE), as well as on the government bond index. Furthermore, event study methodology is applied to identify markets' reactions to the Israeli military operations in the Gaza Strip.
