Daily Briefing April 25 – What you need to know about the rocket fire from Gaza

Tune in Sunday through Thursday to hear ToI editors and reporters quickly catch you up on what’s important today

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.

Today’s panel comprises founding editor David Horovitz and military correspondent Judah Ari Gross, along with host Amanda Borschel-Dan.

Gross gives us an update on the approximately 40 rockets that were fired from the Gaza Strip over the weekend. Only six were intercepted by the Iron Dome anti-missile battery — is that cause for concern? Also, who is taking responsibility for the attacks, and whom does Israel blame?

The rain of rockets from Gaza is allegedly in retaliation for recent ongoing unrest in Jerusalem. What sparked the violent protests and who is to blame?

Finally, we herald Saturday’s victory of Aslan Karatsev over the No. 1 player in the world, Novak Djokovic, in the Serbian Open semifinals. Why is this win a loss for Israel?
