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.
Political correspondent Carrie Keller-Lynn and health reporter Nathan Jeffay join host Amanda Borschel-Dan.
Prime Minister Yair Lapid took to the podium last night to report on the state of the union following the 66-hour Operation Breaking Dawn and addressed the Palestinian people directly. What was his message?
