Daily Briefing Dec. 13: IDF examines Jenin death; Haredim push religion in the state

Military correspondent Emanuel Fabian talks about IDF shooting and Gaza catfishing as religion reporter Judah Ari Gross discusses United Torah Judaism’s plans

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 religion reporter Judah Ari Gross join host Jessica Steinberg for today’s podcast.

Fabian discusses the death of 16-year-old Jana Majdi Assam Zakarna, found dead on the roof of her Jenin home late Sunday after a gun battle between Palestinians and Israeli border police, and Israel’s attempts to figure out and explain what happened.

Gross looks at the latest reports of attempts by the ultra-Orthodox United Torah Judaism party to spread religious measures across Israel, as well as the results of a poll showing that few Israelis support these kinds of demands.

Fabian talks about Gaza operatives’ attempts to contact Israelis through social media.

Gross looks at a Momentum trip to Israel for Russian and Ukrainian women, which went ahead despite political concerns and came up with surprising results.

Discussed articles include:

IDF says sniper likely mistakenly killed Palestinian girl during Jenin raid

Few Israelis support religion-and-state blitz mulled by incoming coalition – poll

Shin Bet: Gaza operatives try to ‘catfish’ Israelis with fake social media accounts

Russian and Ukrainian Jewish women bond during first-of-its-kind trip to Israel
