Daily Briefing Apr. 19: Day 196 – What we know about an alleged Israeli strike in Iran

Military reporter Emanuel Fabian updates us on reports of a strike on an Iranian air base; Zman Yisrael editor Biranit Goren on the decisions on Oct. 7 that sealed hostages’ fates

Welcome to The Times of Israel’s Daily Briefing, your 20-minute audio update on what’s happening in Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish world.

It is day 196 of the war with Hamas. Zman Yisrael editor Biranit Goren and military reporter Emanuel Fabian join host Amanda Borschel-Dan on today’s episode in the Jerusalem office.

Explosions were reportedly heard near the Iranian city of Isfahan early Friday in what some international media is claiming was Israel’s launch of a heavily anticipated reprisal strike for the Iranian attack on Israel Saturday night. Fabian briefs us on what is being reported and gives us updates on the conflict along Israel’s northern and Gaza border. Goren weighs in on the immediate consequences of the alleged attack on Iran.

Ahead of next week’s Passover holiday, Jerusalem Affairs Minister Meir Porush wrote to United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Tor Wennesland and demanded that he work to provide the hostages in Gaza with matzah and wine for the Seder night. Goren dives into their ongoing captivity and how it is a consequence of decisions made by the Israeli government on October 7.
