Welcome to The Times of Israel Daily Briefing, your 15-minute audio update on what’s happening in Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish world, Sunday through Thursday.
Today’s panel included editor David Horovitz and military correspondent Judah Ari Gross, along with host Amanda Borschel-Dan.
As anyone who follows Israeli politics knows, it’s not over until it’s over. However, as the “change block” looks set to take over Sunday afternoon after an oath ceremony, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has eminently made it clear that he will move to the opposition by kicking and screaming. Similarly, yesterday, a group of ultra-Orthodox parties openly denounced incoming Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, an overtly religious Jew, and asked him to take off his kippah.
Over the past week, the mysterious death of an imprisoned IDF intelligence officer has made headlines in Israeli media. What can we say and why is there such severe censorship on this case?
Finally, we discuss the ongoing post-op of the Guardian of the Walls operation in May. This week, the United Nations Relief and Labor Agency (UNRWA) released a statement saying that there was indeed a terror tunnel under one of its schools in the Gaza Strip, which was targeted. by the IDF. Similarly, Israeli Ambassador to the United States Gilad Erdan met with Associated Press management to shed light on the bombing of his tower, claiming that there were disrupters at the Iron Dome in the building. But why do we hear it a month later?
