Daily Briefing April 20: Why doesn’t Israel better explain Temple Mount clashes?

Military correspondent Emanuel Fabian discusses tensions in the Temple Mount and Gaza, as senior analyst Haviv Rettig Gur looks at why Israel avoids offering explanations

Welcome to The Times of Israel’s Daily Briefing, your 15-minute audio update on what’s happening in Israel, the Middle East, and the Jewish world, from Sunday through Thursday.

Military correspondent Emanuel Fabian and senior analyst Haviv Rettig Gur join host Jessica Steinberg for today’s podcast.

Fabian looks at the latest events in Gaza and the Temple Mount, where tensions remain high.
